Become A Grant Reader

GPSA relies on the support of graduate students in evaluating and scoring the applications. As a GPSA Grant Reader, you determine which graduate and professional students will be awarded the grant they applied for each semester. This is a great way to learn about our grants process, provide helpful comments to students, strengthens your student research and professional development grant applications and get involved with the GPSA.

 All enrolled, degree-seeking graduate students are eligible to become readers. We require our grant readers to attend a short training session and score 15-20 applications each (3-4 hours of work). We also ask that readers be available to read last minute applications, re-read applications, and be available to attend any appeals that may arise.

We value your time and hard work. Readers will receive a $50 stipend for reading 15-20 applications. Readers who would like to read more (22+) are eligible for a $100 stipend. Readers are paid in the form of a scholarship through the Student Government Accounting Office (SGAO).
