Updates from NSF
Beginning with the next iteration of the Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (anticipated effective date, January 2020), NSF will only accept PDFs for biographical sketches that are generated through use of an NSF-approved format. A draft version of the PAPPG was published in the Federal Register for public comment. The deadline for submission of comments is COB July 29, 2019.
NSF has designated the National Institutes of Health’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.
Multiple training resources are available on the SviENcv website.
We encourage you to share this information with your colleagues. Direct any IT system-related questions to the NSF Help Desk at 1-800-381-1532 or email@example.com. Policy-related questions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
