Welcome to the IMLS Office of Museum Services Online Peer Reviewer Registration.
We thank you for your interest in serving as a reviewer for applications for the
Office of Museum Services.
Peer review is a fundamental to decision making by IMLS. The agency
relies on the advice and recommendations of members of the field in the grant
making process. We appreciate your
willingness to take the time to be part of the process and provide a valuable
service to the museum community.
This online registration system is
for new reviewers, that is, museum professionals who have not previously
registered to be an IMLS reviewer. Potential reviewers should have a strong commitment and ongoing
participation in the museum field.
What we ask
The registration process asks you
for information about yourself, your current position, your work experience,
your professional expertise, and some preferences to review. After you have submitted your registration to
IMLS, your submission will be confirmed by e-mail. Within approximately 30 days, IMLS will review
your qualifications and notify you of your status.
