Become A Metropolitan Regional Arts Council Grant Panelist

Help the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council (MRAC) continue to improve art access in our region by becoming a grant review panelist. MRAC’s grantmaking process is unique in that they use a peer panel process to read and review grant applications. All panelists receive a virtual orientation, a $150 stipend, and reimbursements for caregiver expenses. Panelists will have four weeks to read and review up to 30 grant applications that are approximately four pages in length. All panel duties will be done virtually throughout the month of April. This opportunity is a great fit if you:
  • are an artist, are employed or volunteer in the arts, or are an arts enthusiast

  • live in the 7-county Twin Cities Metro area

  • are at least 18 years old and

  • are new to grant writing or MRAC and want to understand these processes more thoroughly
