Webinar: Updates on NSF Current & Pending Support and Biographical Sketches

We will be hosting a webinar on Friday, September 18th, 2:00pm – 3:00pm for faculty and staff to review the latest updates concerning NSF Current & Pending Support and Biographical Sketches. Click here to register, using a Columbia-affiliated email address.

Agenda will include:

  • Latest clarifications from NSF and FAQs
  • Walk through of the PDF-fillable forms
  • Demo of SciENcv

As we have previously communicated, the NSF Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 20-1) went into effect for proposals submitted or due on or after June 1, 2020. The PAPPG contains important policy changes concerning Current & Pending Support and Biographical Sketches. The NSF will require their PDF-fillable forms, or SciENcv, to create Current & Pending Support and Biographical Sketches for proposals submitted or due on or after October 5, 2020.

To access the PDF-fillable forms, information on SciENcv, FAQs and other training materials, see:

Feel free to send questions prior to the webinar to Stephanie Scott at sfs2110@cumc.columbia.edu. If you are unable to attend the webinar, the slides will be made available afterwards.
