Reminder NSF SciENcv mandate effective Oct 23

Friday, September 8, 2023

Dear Investigator;

This is a reminder that NSF’s mandate to use SciENcv only for preparation of the biographical sketch and current and pending (other) support will go into effect for new proposals submitted or due on or after October 23, 2023.

SciENcv (Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae) is a free tool made available by NCBI which allows researchers to assemble the professional information needed to participate in federally funded research. Researcher’s profiles are associated with the individual, and not their institution.
NSF has made available additional resources:

NIH continues to encourage investigators to use SciENcv to create compliant biosketches
ORA's site has more details about SciENcv, NSF Proposal Tips, and NIH Proposal Tips and NCBI workshop materials from Spring 2023 can be found here

ORA appreciates your continued diligence in submitting a complete and compliant proposal. 

Thank you,
