Help Wanted: 'Promise' Reviewers Sought

Federal officials are seeking peer reviewers for the Obama administration's new Promise Neighborhoods grant program.

As many of you know, Promise Neighborhood grants will support comprehensive, community-wide programs serving children in poor areas. Much like the Harlem Children's Zone, Promise Neighborhoods should take "a comprehensive approach designed to ensure that children have access to a continuum of cradle-through-college-to-career solutions, with strong schools at the center that will support academic achievement, healthy development, and college and career success," the department says.

Reviewers, who will receive honoraria for their work, must independently read and score grant applications, and provide written comments on them. The deadline to apply to be a reviewer is June 1.

For more details, read the department's "Call for Reviewers."
