Minimal Immediate Impacts of Government Shutdown on Student Funding at Start of Spring Term
The partial shutdown of the federal government is causing headaches for researchers in many fields, but is generally not impacting currently funded graduate student fellowships, assistantships, or traineeships. Students who are supported on existing federal grants or awards should not anticipate disruptions for the start of the spring semester. The shutdown is indeed delaying the review and approval of some new federal grants that were not yet awarded or finalized. Questions? Contact Grad_funding@cornell.edu
