New System for NSF Biographical Sketches

NSF recently released a statement regarding biographical sketches for NSF proposals.  NSF has designated NIH’s SciENcv(Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae) as an NSF-approved format for submission of biographical sketch(es) and is encouraging its use to prepare a biographical sketch for inclusion in proposals to NSF.  Requirements for the biographical sketch have not change and the guidance in Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 19-1) is still in effect, however there may be changes in future versions of the PAPPG.

For more information, please see the attached NSF notice.

Note: The PAPPG for 2020 is now available for comment.  If you would like to review and send comments, please send to by June 28th.
