Creating a Biographical Sketch

Biographical sketches should follow the sponsor's guidelines.  Each sponsor has a set format for the information.  You MUST include all required elements in the document.  Watch for page limits.  Sponsor's will throw out your proposal if you do not follow the rules.  

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has designated the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) ScieENcv (Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae) as an NSF-approved format and encourages faculty to use it to prepare all NSF and NIH biosketches.
