SciENcv is a tool for the creation of biographical sketches during the grant application process. It is a growing requirement to use a SciENcv created biosketch for government grants across agencies. Those with current requirements are the NSF for current and pending support documents and the biosketch, and NIH currently has use of the biosketch as an option. The NSF also created fillable PDF documents that can be used as an alternative to SciENcv.
NSF Proposal Guidelines planned to go into effect June 1, 2020 included the requirement of an NSF approved format for the biosketch and current and pending support. Due to COVID-19 and surrounding considerations, this requirement has been pushed back to the date of October 1, 2020. NSF is still encouraging researchers to start using the NSF approved formats. The approved formats include:
All other changes and updates with the PAPPG-20 are still going forward with respect to grants submitted on or after June 1, 2020.
