Grant Readers Needed for After School Proposals

The Connecticut State Department of Education is currently looking for a few good grant readers to help them evaluate grant proposals for after school programs. This is an unpaid, volunteer commitment to read and evaluate three or four proposals (maximum of 40 pages each) and score them on a matrix. A training webinar will be held in early September to discuss the program requirements and answer questions. This process will be conducted entirely on-line this year as the grant proposals are being submitted electronically, so no travel is involved.

To be eligible, you cannot work for an organization that is applying for the state-funded after school grants as either a primary grantee or a partner. This is a great opportunity to strengthen your own grant writing skills while also providing an important community service.

If you are interested in being considered as a possible grant reader, please click here to submit your contact information including a short description of your relevant experience and any possible cities or organizations where you may have a conflict of interest. Please respond by August 30th.
