There are two types of reviews that your submission may receive: Peer-to-Peer review and Wise Head Panel review. 


During the Peer-to-Peer review, each organization lead will score and comment on five applications from other organizations. During the Wise Head Panel review, top-scoring applications receive an additional five reviews. All reviews are statistically normalized to ensure fairness.


Based on those reviews, top scoring applicants will receive domain specific technical reviews in which proposals will be assigned to a technical reviewer with expertise in the field of the proposed project. Selection of the final award recipient rests with MacArthur’s Board of Directors.
