Compliant National Science Foundation Materials

Join Lauren Magruder, director of pre-award, as she shares information on the Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae as a National Science Foundation (NSF) approved format for use in preparation of the biosketch and current and pending support sections of an NSF proposal.

Currently, principal investigators can prepare their biosketch and current and pending support information using either of two NSF-approved formats: SciENcv or NSF Fillable PDF. Beginning October 23, 2023, the NSF Fillable PDF will not be an option and the SciENcv formats will be required.

Adoption of a single, common researcher profile system for federal grants reduces administrative burden for researchers. SciENcv will produce NSF-compliant PDF versions of the Biosketch and Current and Pending support formats. Proposers must save this document and submit it as part of their proposal via Individuals who have an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCiD) can import ORCiD information into SciENcv to create and update documents more efficiently.
