AHCMC relies on an array of arts and humanities professionals to serve as grant reviewers, ensuring that funding is distributed to organizations and/or individuals that are most worthy, impactful, and relevant to our community. Panelists are chosen for their expert knowledge of specific arts, humanities and/or cultural disciplines, as well as their management experience, professional knowledge of the sector, and prior panel experience. AHCMC staff makes every effort to ensure the panel is diverse in all respects.
Once selected, panelists are assigned to one of the funding opportunities below.
All panelists receive an individual, virtual orientation before the application review process begins. Panelists are expected to review and score all applications prior to the panel meeting. During the panel meeting, panelists convene as a group to discuss and evaluate all applications.
Please note: All panel meetings are currently held virtually on the Zoom platform.
AHCMC offers a $300 stipend for one-day meetings and $400 for two-day panel meetings. Stipends are determined by budget availability and the number of applicants reviewed. A lower stipend denotes fewer proposals reviewed by panelists.
