GRFP recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students pursuing research-based masters and doctoral degrees in science or engineering at accredited US institutions. (See the Program Solicitation, NSF 16-588, for more details on GRFP.) NSF seeks GRFP panels composed of researchers and educators from a wide range of institutions, geographic locations, and disciplinary and interdisciplinary backgrounds.

Serving as a GRFP panelist is an excellent opportunity to apply your research and career expertise to help identify future science and engineering leaders, and to gain valuable perspective to share with faculty and students at your institution. Panelists will also receive a flat rate payment of $200 per day for each full four-hour virtual panel session they attend. However, panelists who are Federal employees, citizens of foreign countries who are not permanent residents, and special visa holders are not entitled to the flat rate payment.

Below are details of the 2018 panels:
· All reviews and panels will be conducted online without travel requirements. There will be no on-site participation for the GRFP panels; the panels are completely virtual.

· In November, panelists must attend an orientation session webinar, selecting one from several available sessions. This is required for both new and returning panelists, as orienting information is subject to change.

· Panelists review graduate school-like applications that include one 3-page statement, one 2-page statement, transcripts, and three reference letters.

· Each panelist will review approximately 30 assigned applications in early December, over the course of about 4 weeks.

· Panelists will enter their reviews and ratings online.

· In January 2018, panels will convene online using WebEx for two virtual panel sessions scheduled on two different days (either Monday and Thursday or Tuesday and Friday) to discuss the applicant pool and make selection recommendations to NSF.
