JOB OPPORTUNITIES

Grant Panelists

Monmouth Arts is looking to expand its pool of grant review panelists to perform evaluations of applications submitted for funding consideration throughout the year. Panelists are integral to the grantmaking process, providing critical review, comments, and scores of all applications to a particular grant program. Monmouth Arts seeks panel diversity in all forms: age, race, gender, disabilities, sexual orientation, arts discipline, location, etc.

 

Interested individuals who have a deep knowledge of the arts, best practices for nonprofits, and arts administration are encouraged to submit a resume. Panelists are provided a stipend for serving as a grant reviewer. A panelist’s time commitment will vary depending on the grant being reviewed and the amount of materials required of applicants. All reviews are completed on Submittable, the grant portal of Monmouth Arts. Due to COVID-19, any panel meetings will be conducted via Zoom and led by staff.

 

We know there are more qualified potential panelists than panelist opportunities, but we welcome this opportunity to build a database of qualified reviewers. Applicants will be notified via email.

 

How to apply: Send email with the subject line Grant Panelist and a resume to Connie Isbell, Director of Membership & Community Engagement, at connie@monmoutharts.org. No phone calls please. Deadline is May 28th, 2021.
