Peer Reviewers Needed

OJP is interested in expanding their 2011 pool of expert peer reviewers. Help improve public safety by working with OJP to advance innovative and successful criminal and juvenile justice programs and services.

Each year, thousands of grant applications are submitted to OJP for criminal and juvenile justice funding opportunities. Peer reviewers provide subject matter expertise that informs the grant selection process. They read and evaluate applications in their field, giving scores and summarizing strengths and weaknesses. This information is used by OJP as part of a larger decision-making process.

Reviewers are given 2 weeks to read and evaluate 10–20 applications and participate in a consensus review. The estimated time commitment ranges from 25–30 hours per assignment and compensation is provided.

Opportunities for peer reviewers are available now. Start the enrollment process by sending an e-mail to
