Implementation of Changes to the Biographical Sketch and Other Support Format Page

NIH Notice Number: NOT-OD-21-110

Release Date: April 28, 2021


NIH expects applicants and recipients to use the updated biosketch and other support format for applications, Just-in-Time (JIT) Reports, and Research Performance Progress Reports (RPPRs) as of May 25, 2021. NIH will require the use of the updated format pages for the previously mentioned submissions for anything on and after January 25, 2022. Failure to follow the appropriate formats on or after January 25, 2022 may cause NIH to withdraw applications from or delay consideration of funding.

UNC-CH strongly encourages everyone to use the transition period before January 25, 2022, to become familiar with, and convert your existing Other Support and Biosketch pages to the updated format.
