As of October 23, 2023, the NSF Biographical Sketch and Current and Pending (Other) Support documents must be prepared using the SciENcv web application. SciENcv also supports preparation of biographical sketches for National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Institute of Education Sciences (IES) grant applications. Users can link their SciENcv accounts to their ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID), NSF, or NIH eRA Commons accounts to populate with information on affiliations, grants, and publications.
For further guidance and training on using SciENcv and ORCID, please see the following resources:
