An NIH biographical sketch or biosketch is a five-page resume of your scientific work. A biosketch is required for all NIH grant applications and renewals.

To get started, go to the NIH Grants and Funding website and download the biosketch instructions and the biosketch examples. There are two different sets of instructions and three biosketch examples available for downloading.
