About Individual Banking

Individual banking is a process for collecting and updating banking information from individuals, including postdoctoral fellowship recipients, honorary award recipients, international travelers, and Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA) program staff. Individuals submitting a proposal via an award organization do not need to set up individual banking. The process can only accommodate U.S. bank accounts. If you do not have a U.S. bank account, please send an email to itrkinqry@nsf.gov with "Individual Banking" in the subject line to discuss your situation.
