The new NSF biographical sketch and current and pending support format requirement was delayed until October 5, 2020 to allow for adequate implementation and training. Based on feedback from the research community, NSF has made several improvements to the NSF-approved Biographical Sketch and Current and Pending Support forms required for all senior personnel included in a proposal. In-depth Video Webinars covering the use of the NSF-approved formats are available on the NSF Policy Outreach website.
