The US National Science Foundation is looking for ecologists who are willing
to serve as panelists for the 2017 Graduate Research Fellowship Program
(GRFP). GRFP recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students pursuing
research-based masters and doctoral degrees in science or engineering at
accredited US institutions (for GRFP details see the new solicitation, NSF
16-588). NSF seeks GRFP panels composed of researchers and educators from a
wide range of institutions and geographic locations. All reviews and panels
will be conducted online and do not require any travel. Panelists must
attend an orientation webinar in November 2016, review about 30 fellowship
applications, and participate in virtual panels in January 2017.
If you would like to be considered as a 2017 GRFP panelist, please visit
https://panelists.nsfgrfp.org to register in the panelist system.
Registering in the panelist system does not commit you to serving as a GRFP
panelist. Based on anticipated needs, NSF will send formal invitations to
panelists in late September-October. If you have questions contact Mike
