The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH) relies on volunteer citizen panelists to evaluate and rate grant applications at various times throughout the year. Panelists review applications, provide comments, and score applications in order to advise on proposals submitted to the agency’s various grant programs.
Residents of the District of Columbia metropolitan area are encouraged to apply to serve as a panelist. Selected panelists will demonstrate expertise through involvement in one or more sectors of the creative economy in the District. Individuals with arts and humanities backgrounds make the strongest candidates (i.e. artists, arts administrators, arts educators, gallery professionals, curators, art critics, etc.). CAH supports panel diversity in all forms: age, race, gender, disabilities, sexual orientation, artistic discipline, location, etc.
CAH grant programs will be paneled during the spring, summer and fall of 2020, so don’t delay – apply to be a grant panelist today!
