Call for Reviewers for 2015-16 Albert Einstein Fellowship (AEF) applications

Call for Peer Reviewers

Volunteer to review the 2015-16 Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship (AEF) Program applications.

Triangle Coalition for STEM Education is seeking individuals to assist in the peer review of the 2015-16 candidate applications for the Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship (AEF) Program. The AEF Program provides a unique opportunity for accomplished K -12 educators in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to serve in the national education arena in Washington, DC. Fellows spend 11 months working in a Federal agency or U.S. Congressional office, bringing their extensive classroom knowledge and experience to STEM education programs and/or education policy efforts.

All eligible applications are subject to external peer review as part of the process to select the most outstanding, qualified applicants. Critical to the integrity and quality of that peer review process is the participation of volunteer experts as reviewers.

Reviewers with expertise and experience in one or more of the following areas are needed:
  • Advancing STEM education
  • Teaching and learning in STEM
  • Reviewing education-related fellowship applications and/or grant proposals
  • Management and/or execution of federally sponsored STEM education programs
  • STEM leadership at the regional, state and national levels
  • Knowledge of STEM education policy at the federal and/or state level
Selected reviewers must be available to review up to 8 application packets between the end of November 2014 through early January 2015. Applications will be made available to reviewers through an online review system. Each application will require approximately 2 hours for thorough evaluation and scoring.

K-12 STEM educators who are applying or plan to apply for the 2015-16 AEF Program are not eligible to review applications.

To volunteer to be a peer reviewer, please provide your information to Triangle Coalition for STEM Education through the online site at by 5:00 p.m. EST on Thursday, November 20, 2014.

Inquiries for further information may be directed to Anthonette Peña:, (703) 516-5963.
