2020 Sachs Program Grants Evaluation Committee Members
Similar to last year, for our 2020 grants cycle, we employed a two-stage evaluation process. Applications were first reviewed by a group of committee members, including former grantees, faculty, staff, and students. There were 4 committees in total. Feedback from each committee was then shared with the Sachs Program Advisory Board, who made the final decisions over the course of multiple meetings. We would like to thank and acknowledge the 2020 committee members for their important contributions to this process.
