Call for Peer Reviewers: International and Foreign Language Education Office

Call for Peer Reviewers
International and Foreign Language Education Office
U.S. Department of Education

The International and Foreign Language Education office (IFLE) of the U.S. Department of Education administers a variety of international education programs. IFLE continually seeks qualified individuals, in particular language and area studies specialists, to serve as readers for grant competitions.

Readers participate in a panel review of applications, and are provided with modest compensation. Most reviews are conducted electronically, via the Department’s G5 system, and travel will not be necessary. In cases where travel is necessary, readers are provided with roundtrip travel, hotel room, and meal allowances. The review process involves orientation, reading of applications, and regularly scheduled discussions with other panelists. Scores are based on pre-determined selection criteria for each program. Panel reviews normally last one to two weeks.

If you are interested in being considered for this opportunity, and feel that you have the appropriate qualifications, please submit an online application at and click on the link for the FRS Registration Page.

Once online, you will be asked to submit your application, including your resume/CV and provide background information outlining your expertise and background. You will also be able to indicate which IFLE programs you are interested in being considered for. Your application to become a field reader will be reviewed by OPE staff to determine whether you have the subject area expertise and appropriate background needed for upcoming competitions.

- Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad (DDRA)
