Call for A&H Grant Review Panelists

 

The Boise City Department of Arts & History seeks members of Boise’s history, cultural, and creative fields from diverse communities to serve as grant review panelists for Arts & History's 2024 Grant opportunities

Panelists play a critical role in the grant application process as field representatives. They work both independently and virtually alongside members of the Arts & History Commission, Arts & History staff, and the cultural & creative community, to evaluate grant applications, ensuring an equitable, honest, and thorough review and ranking process.

The panel experience provides great insight into the grant-making process and can serve as a professional development practice for an individual’s career and future goals. In addition to experienced individuals, this is a great opportunity for new and emerging members of Boise’s history, cultural, and creative fields to build their skills.

Please note: Panelists that serve are ineligible to apply for funding from that grant program.
