NASA Research and Education Support Services (NRESS) is seeking persons willing to serve as peer reviewers for the Engagement Opportunities in NASA STEM 2021 (EONS-2021) Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO): Appendix M-NASA MUREP Aerospace High-Volume Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management Cooperative Agreement (MUREP High-Volume). Information about this opportunity, proposal requirements and evaluation criteria can be found on the EONS 2021: Appendix M-MUREP High Volume page in the NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES).


Given the most recent events in our nation and the world, supporting the efforts to offer opportunities to support broadening participation in engineering through new and innovative concepts is relevant and timely. By engaging individuals with different backgrounds, perspectives and areas of expertise in the review process, your participation will assist in identifying high-quality projects.


The peer review process is completed in two stages: 

1. THE ONLINE REVIEW: scheduled for November 4-11, 2021
Online reviewers will be expected to carefully read each proposal assigned and complete an online evaluation form. Each proposal should be reviewed on its own merit and should not be compared to others you have been assigned. Every effort will be made to assign no more than 5 proposals per online reviewer. Non-civil servant online reviewers will receive $75 for each proposal review completed and submitted in NSPIRES prior to the close of the review period. 


2. THE PANEL REVIEW: scheduled for November 22-24, 2021
The panel will be comprised of a group of peers, discussing the strengths and weaknesses of each proposal. The duration of the panel might change depending on the number of proposals being reviewed, but for scheduling purposes, plan on a full-day commitment for all three days. One evaluation form will be completed by the group for each proposal, resulting in documents that will aid the Program Manager with selecting which proposal(s) should be recommended for funding.Non-civil servant panelists will receive a $200/per day honorarium.

If you are interested in participating, please identify which stage(s) of the peer review process you are available for (online review and/or virtual panel) and list your area(s) of expertise. Your response and current CV are requested by October 31, 2021 and should be sent to 


Please note, your willingness to participate in this review does not guarantee your selection. Reviewers will be selected based on the subject matter of each proposal received. You will only be contacted if you are selected to participate.


Please stay healthy and safe.
