Minimal. Reviewers are asked to commit to serve on a review team for a 2–3 year period. Time spent reviewing applications varies based on application. The estimated time commitment is 30 minutes–30 hours over a 2–4 week period of time annually. Research grant reviews are on the higher end of this time spectrum.
