NSF Approved Formats for Biographical Sketch and Current & Pending Support

The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently recorded a webinar about the requirement to use an NSF-approved format for both the biographical sketch and current & pending support documents as part of proposals submitted or due on or after June 1, 2020. The two NSF-approved formats are SciENcv: Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae, and an NSF Fillable PDF.

Webinar topics include:

  • the policy guidance for preparation of the biographical sketch and current and pending support sections of the proposal;
  • a walk-through of the user experience in accessing these formats in NSF systems;
  • detailed guidance from NIH on using SciENcv for preparing both documents; and
  • answers to a number of frequently asked questions.
