Become A Grant Panelist

Humanities scholars, we need your help. If you consider yourself objective and knowledgeable on the humanities and are interested in raising up the vital, underserved voices and stories from communities across Florida, consider applying to serve as a Florida Humanities grants panelist!

Panelists receive an honorarium to read and score grants and program applications. Historians, anthropologists, educators, community leaders, oral historians, folklorists, and professionals in the literary arts in the cultural, academic, public and private sectors are highly encouraged to apply.

Application/Selection Process:

  • New applications are reviewed and approved by Florida Humanities staff.
  • Panelists selected for consideration will be contacted by Florida Humanities staff for a virtual interview via video conference.
  • Approved panelists are notified of their acceptance and entered a database for future consideration and selection.
  • Florida Humanities staff will contact you via email should your service and expertise be needed for a panel.

PLEASE NOTE: Notification will be sent to the email address provided within your application.

What is expected of a Grant Panelist:

If selected as a grant panelist, you will be expected to:

  • Serve for at least one (1) year as a panelist.
  • Participate in at least one (1) grant review from start to finish. The total process, from reading proposals to gathering on a virtual grant evaluation call, takes approximately 15-20 hours over a 4-week period.
