Evaluation Panel Members

Evaluation Panel judges will score and provide feedback on the applications assigned to them using the scoring rubric, and each valid application will receive five sets of reviews with scores that have been statistically normalized to ensure a level playing field. Applicants are encouraged to use this valuable feedback to strengthen and refine their solutions as they implement projects and secure other funding sources.  

Meet the judges featured here, and more Evaluation Panel members will be added in the next few months.
