AmeriCorps*Texas Community Review

The purpose of the AmeriCorps Community Review is to identify the highest-quality applications based on the selection criteria provided in the Application Instructions. Your participation as a Reviewer directly influences the selection of AmeriCorps programs and shapes the future of National Service in Texas.

Community Reviewer Responsibilities

As a Community Reviewer for OneStar you will be asked to review up to 8 AmeriCorps State applications in a period of approximately 2-3 weeks. You will  utilize an electronic scorecard to rate and comment on the applications you review. Reviewers will also commit to participate on a conference call with their review committee to discuss the reviewed applications. 


As a Community Reviewer you have access to information that is not generally available to the public. This access comes with professional and ethical responsibilities. Each application belongs to those who developed it, and the rights of each applicant must be protected. You may not discuss the organizations, programs or project ideas for the applications you review with anyone outside of this review process.

If OneStar discovers that you have broken confidentiality then you will no longer be invited to serve as a reviewer for OneStar Foundation.

Your identity will be protected to the extent possibly by Texas and Federal Law.


Serving as a Community Reviewer is an excellent professional development opportunity. OneStar provides training and preparation as well as individual support for each review. As a reviewer, you will be exposed to new and innovative ideas in the field and have the opportunity to meet other experts.

OneStar will provide a modest stipend in the amount of $250 for your time and effort in participating as a reviewer. Reviewers who are able to accept and receive such payment will do so upon the successful completion of the Community Review. OneStar agrees to make payment to the reviewer within 30 days of the successful completion of the review and submission of an invoice and W-2.
