The federal government may be closed for business, but we are continuing to deliver the most recently posted funding opportunities. Nothing new has posted since Friday, Dec. 21 when the partial government shutdown started, but a bevy of funding opportunities posted the week prior. Many are National Institutes of Health research opportunities while others are associated with the U.S. Mission to India.
Who's to say when the government shutdown will end? We certainly can't. But we can say our hearts go out to the hundreds of thousands of federal workers who won't receive much needed paychecks. A resolution needs to be found immediately after Congress reconvenes in January, if not sooner.
Until then, peruse the most recent list of federal funding opportunities, starting with the three we've highlight below.
