Join a Group

Sign Up on our mailing list to be notified when new applications are available each semester.

Fall PRG applications coming soon!

Email kellyc@iastate.edu to be placed on a mailing list to receive notifications about PRGs in upcoming semesters. 

Please complete the application only once per semester to avoid duplicate records. Even if you have submitted an application in the past, you should reapply for the current semester as schedules change. For the best chance of being placed in a group, fill out the entire application and be sure you've included your name & email address.

Applicants are encouraged to explore the PRG website, especially our working model, so they understand how PRGs work prior to submitting an application.


Summer 2017 PRGs 

ENGR+ - Thursdays 11:30-1 (focus on CBE & electrical engineering, but all science & ENGR welcome)

Qual/Mixed/Social Science - Thursdays 1:10-2:40 (focus on education & applied linguistics)


New members are not limited to the broad disciplines listed, but will be placed based on the compatibility of their work with current membership, which changes over time.

Observe a Peer Review Group

Prospective members are invited to observe a PRG meeting before joining a group (2nd or 3rd week of semester recommended). Students are welcome to observe either group regardless of their own discipline. To observe a group, contact kellyc@iastate.edu.


Students are placed in groups based on discipline and availability. Some students may be waitlisted with the opportunity to be placed in a group at a later date should an opening become available or a new group form. More groups may be added to meet student interests if resources allow. 

When initial placements are made, students who have been placed in a group will receive an email offering them a spot in a group. They should respond to the email to confirm their participation and start attending the group. After all groups have been filled, remaining students who have not been placed will be waitlisted and notified by email.
