Now Accepting Applications for the 2023 Grants Advisory Committee

The deadline for applying for these positions is November 12, 2022

We are now accepting applications from those wishing to serve on our Grants Advisory Committee (GAC). These are volunteer positions, with a term of one year (January to December). These committees usually meet twice a month for at least an hour. There is additional time spent reviewing proposals and email correspondence that happen between meetings. Estimated time commitment is about 2-5 hours/week.

An amateur radio license OR a technical degree OR experience in digital communications is necessary to be able to review project proposals. We are looking for a broad range of experience on our review committee, and people with experience in K-12 education, university academics, research and development, or nonprofits are especially encouraged to apply. 

We are also interested in volunteers who are located outside of the United States. Please note that a good command of the English language and flexibility accommodating a broad range of time zones is needed to participate effectively.
