NSF Updates

Using SciENcv to Prepare NSF Biographical Sketches and Current and Pending Support

A revised National Science Foundation (NSF) Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG), known as NSF 20-1, has been released. It will be effective on June 1, 2020. NSF-approved formats for the Biographical Sketch and Current and Pending Support will be required for ongoing projects, and all NSF proposals submitted or due on or after October 5, 2020.

Biographical Sketch

  • SciENcv (Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae) allows the researcher to quickly create and maintain their NSF Biographical Sketch, and to integrate publications and other profile information from ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier). The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) encourages Syracuse University researchers to use ORCID for listing NSF publications to simplify entering and updating publications in one place, and then import the publication records into other systems, including SciENcv.
  • Training resources are available on the SciENcv website.

Current and Pending Support

Additional Resources

NSF will continue to keep the research community informed as approved formats and related information become available, and this information will be available on NSF websites for Biographical Sketch and Current and Pending Support.
