Panel Readers Needed For US Department Of Education International Programs

The International and Foreign Language Education (IFLE) Service in the U.S. Department of Education administers a variety of international programs. IFLE continually seeks language and area studies specialists to serve as readers for grant competitions. Readers participate in a panel review of applications (usually no longer than one to two weeks), and are provided with modest compensation. Most reviews are conducted electronically, via the U.S. Department of Education’s e-Reader system, and travel will not be necessary. In cases where travel is necessary, readers are provided with roundtrip travel, hotel room, and meal allowances. The review process involves orientation, reading of the applications, and daily discussions with other panelists. Scores are based on U.S. Department of Education selection criteria. If you or anyone you know is interested in serving as a reader please visit the U.S. Department of Education Field Reader System Web site at: http://opeweb.ed.gov/frs/register.cfm to enter your information.
