Grant Panel Reviewer Interest Form

Mid-America Arts Alliance, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, offers multiple funding opportunities, including the Artistic Innovations Grant Program which requires adjudication by a panel of arts professionals.

Mid-America Arts Alliance relies upon arts leaders in the field to serve as reviewers for the Artistic Innovations program. Review of application materials followed by a reviewer meeting typically takes place in April. The meeting is held in a web-based format. Reviewers are not expected to travel; however, each reviewer must be able to commit to independent review of applications in advance of the meeting which may take as many as 5-hours. Reviewers must have a computer capable of browsing and participation in online meetings as well as reliable internet access. Compensation is offered by way of an honorarium ranging from $100-$250 contingent upon the number applications assigned to the reviewer.

Submitted interest forms will be held for consideration for two years. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Christine Bial
, Director of Grant Programs at Christine@maaa.org.
