INTERESTED IN BEING A NEVADA ARTS COUNCIL GRANT PANELIST?


The Nevada Arts Council invites members of the community to apply to serve as panelists for our grant panels. Serving on a peer-review panel is a powerful learning experience and a valuable contribution to the arts in Nevada. By providing your support to the arts and culture community throughout the state, you are participating in cultural policy in action and gaining insight about the grant making process. Peer review panels include artists, arts administrators, and community leaders who represent Nevada’s diversity in all forms including age, race, ethnicity, gender, physical ability, and heritage.

 


JACKPOT GRANT PANEL
We are currently seeking panelists for the Fiscal Year 2019-2020 Quarterly Jackpot Grants. The Jackpot Grant panel review process begins with individual reading, commenting and scoring applications. This is followed by a public “virtual” meeting where the panelists will discuss the applications and make final scoring decisions. Since the meeting will be held via conference call, there is no travel required for panelists. Panelists will be provided with a modest Honorarium.

For the Fiscal Year 2019-2020 Jackpot Grant cycle, panelists will be included in an approved pool for our Quarterly Grant panels for up to two years. Panelists will then be confirmed by staff to serve on specific Quarterly Grant panels according to their areas of expertise.


HOW TO APPLY

Then email the completed form with your resume to Sierra Scott at email.

Because of the limited size of the panel, not all nominees can be selected to serve on the current year’s panel, but the Nevada Arts Council will retain all submissions for consideration for future panels.
