The Department of Education uses a panel of experts to evaluate each application submitted under this program. Each panel consists of three experts and includes persons who are not employees of the federal government. However, a reviewer cannot participate in the review process if a conflict of interest exists because:

  • The reviewer has agreed to serve as an employee or consultant on a project for which funding is being sought in an application under review, or has been offered the opportunity to do so and has not yet accepted or declined, based on whether a grant is awarded;
  • The reviewer’s personal financial interests will be affected by the outcome of the competition;
  • The reviewer helped prepare an application in the competition, even if the reviewer has no financial interest in the outcome of that application; or
  • The reviewer has a relationship with an entity or individual that has a financial interest in the outcome of the competition..

Thank you for your interest in the Native Hawaiian Education Program.
