The NIH offers an Early Career Reviewer Program. Here is a brief summary describing the program:

Benefits of the ECR Program

  • Work side-by-side with some of the most accomplished researchers in your field to help NIH identify the most promising grant applications
  • Learn how reviewers determine overall impact scores
  • Improve your own grant writing skills by getting an insider's view of how grant applications are evaluated
  • Serve the scientific community by participating in NIH peer review
  • Develop research-evaluation and critique-writing skills

The goals of the ECR Program are to:

  • Train and educate qualified scientists without prior CSR review experience so that they may develop into critical and well trained reviewers
  • Help emerging researchers advance their careers by exposing them to a peer review experience that may make them more competitive as applicants
  • Enrich the existing pool of NIH reviewers by including scientists from less research-intensive institutions as well as those from traditionally research-intensive institutions
