The US Department of Education, Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE), is recruiting Peer Reviewers to read and evaluate federal grant applications for OPE programs.  Selected reviewers will read applications remotely and enter comments and scores into an online database.   All readers need to agree to participate in scheduled training and panel discussions at the designated times.  Readers will receive a flat fee honorarium and, in some cases, a stipend for supplies (paper and ink).  Since program applications vary, reviewers will be informed of the amount of the honorarium they will receive at the time they are selected to be a reviewer.
