Now Available in SciENcv: NSF’s Implementation of the NSTC-approved Common Forms for the NSF Biographical Sketch and Current and Pending (Other) Support

An important notice from NSF:


Dear Colleagues:

NSF is pleased to announce that the NSTC-approved Common Forms for the Biographical Sketch and Current and Pending (Other) Support which are compliant with the new NSF Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 24-1), are now available in SciENcv. These revised formats will be required for proposals submitted or due on or after May 20, 2024. While these revised formats cannot be uploaded in or until May 20, 2024, NSF encourages proposers to become familiar with them in preparation for proposal submission in May.

NSF and our colleagues from the NIH/National Library of Medicine will conduct a webinar on Thursday, April 25 at 2:00 PM EST to discuss the revisions to these forms as well as provide a demonstration of the revised functionality to create and download these required proposal documents in SciENcv. Registration is required and is now available. This webinar will be recorded and available for on-demand viewing.
