Federal Charter Schools Program Seeks Grant Application Reviewers
The Charter Schools Program (CSP) at the U.S. Department of Education is seeking peer reviewers to read and evaluate applications for a new discretionary grant competition.

The CSP seeks reviewers with expertise in at least one of the following areas:
• Public charter school and public nonchartered school collaborations

• Charter school information dissemination activities and strategies
• State educational agency (SEA) charter school program grant administration
