Templates and Tools
Templates for biographical sketches, budgets, and other common NIH and NSF components are found below. Some templates use examples and detailed instructions for proper completion of the form. Some links offer a blank template for completion by the PI. Our NIH templates are modeled on the SF-424 forms for electronic submission, and do not use the form pages required for PHS 398 paper submissions. If your application uses the PHS 398 forms, please use the templates provided by NIH.
Note: These checklists and templates are offered as a guide for electronic submissions. Because NIH and NSF regulations often change, always check the specific RFP/FOA and the agency guidelines for any unique rules or changes in format.
If you have questions about these templates/tools or how to use them, please contact your Sponsored Projects Officer.
