Education Review Panel

The Education Review Panel is the School Solutions Seed Fund’s external grant selection committee, consisting of about 26 education, nonprofit, philanthropic and business leaders who volunteer their time and expertise to participate in the annual proposal review process. Panel members work with EdVestors staff to independently review proposals, discuss them as a group, and recommend initiatives to move forward in EdVestors’ grant selection process. The Education Review Panel provides EdVestors with diverse perspectives of educators, policy makers, and leaders in philanthropy and business to inform our investment decisions.
