Assessing applications

After grant rounds have closed, Grant Assessors are invited to review applications as part of ‘Assessor Panels’ relevant to their skills and experience. These panels are simply a group of assessors who review a single application (each application is reviewed by at least five Grant Assessors). Your overall workload is determined by the number of applications you review.
