Despite a partial shutdown of the federal government, a handful of new funding opportunities were announced last week in the research science and medical fields. We've highlighted three grants for quick reference, or you can see the entire list here.
When the shutdown ends -- hopefully this week when Congress reconvenes -- expect all the grants that have been stuck in a holding pattern to open. We anticipate a much bigger list in the near future. Given the delay in the federal workflow, some grant deadlines may be affected. If you're currently working on a grant application, be certain to monitor timeline changes.
