AHEAD’s Research Review Panel Call for Applications

AHEAD is pleased to support research that is consistent with the mission and values of the organization. When a researcher seeks the opportunity to survey or otherwise engage the membership in a research study, a panel of qualified AHEAD members carefully reviews the proposed study to ensure its quality and alignment with AHEAD’s mission. These selected members comprise the AHEAD Research Review Panel. Panelists serve a three-year term and are typically asked to review approximately two to three research applications each year.

The review panel consists of 7-9 members who are selected through a competitive application process. Selection criteria for panel membership include: (a) postsecondary expertise, knowledge, and experience; (b) knowledge of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) process, (c) availability and willingness to serve; (d) skills working on committees, subcommittees and editorial review panels; and (e) for the panel as a whole, diversity of expertise and points of view. For the upcoming panel, we are particularly inviting applicants who have expertise and/or experience in Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs).
