This guide was created in March 2020, prior to the implementation of PAPPG-20 for NSF grants. PAPPG-20 stands for Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide, and requires the use of a tool called SciENcv for the biosketch portion of grants.
This page is one of a few routes to enter the SciENcv tool. This access point will take you into the same My NCBI account that is referenced under the "Creating a biosketch" page. If you do not have the appropriate accounts connected, you'll be prompted to connect those accounts via this link.
This is the approved NSF fillable PDF for the Biosketch. It will be accepted through October 22, 2023. After that date, you are required to submit Biosketch documents generated through the SciENcv platform.
Updated September 30, 2023, this document answers general questions concerning the NSF requirements.
Your subject librarians are an important part of the grants ecosystem at UT Austin. Below are several librarians with expertise in SciENcv and related programs who can help to answer questions and point you in the right direction.
