Am I correct in assuming that reviewers would not be eligible to apply for Fellowships?

  • Presuming reviewers fit the qualifications to apply for the fellowship (which will be forthcoming) then they can apply. We will direct their applications to another panel member to ensure objectivity. Oct 21, 2011 at 15:11
