Subject:         Availability for NASA Global Climate Change Education 
Online Peer Review
NOTE:  This email is for information gathering purposes. Willingness to 
participate in the peer review process does not guarantee a proposal will 
be assigned. The number of available qualified reviewers may exceed the 
number of reviewers needed.

NASA Research and Education Support Services (NRESS) is seeking persons 
willing to serve as online reviewers for the Global Climate Change 
Education (GCCE) NASA Research Announcement (NRA) NNH08ZNE005N. Peer 
review is a critical component of the decision-making process for awarding 
projects under this NRA. It assists in identifying high-quality projects 
by engaging individuals with different backgrounds, perspectives and areas 
of expertise in the review process. 
The GCCE NRA is designed to improve the quality of global climate change 
and Earth system science education at the elementary, secondary, and 
undergraduate levels.  Each funded proposal is expected to take advantage 
of NASA’s unique contributions in climate science to enhance students’ 
academic experiences and/or to improve educators’ abilities to engage and 
stimulate their students.
Detailed information regarding proposal requirements and evaluation 
criteria are contained in the NRA. This document can be viewed through the 
NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System 
(NSPIRES) at http://nspires.nasaprs.com <http://nspires.nasaprs.com/> . 
Select “Solicitations” and then “Open Solicitations”.
The online review period is scheduled for the November-December time frame
. Proposals will be approximately 15-20 pages in length. Non-civil 
servants will receive an honorarium of $75 for each proposal fully 
reviewed and submitted through NSPIRES by the close of the review period.

peer reviewer and respond to the following by return e-mail to
