I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that there would be a webinar on October 8 for preparing applications for the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. A student who registered for the webinar just forwarded me this e-mail from the Council of Graduate Schools:

Dear CGS webinar registrant,

Due to the lapse in government funding, the Council of Graduate Schools will need to reschedule the October 8 webinar on preparing NSF Graduate Research Fellowship applications until further notice. For more information about how the government shutdown is affecting NSF and its employees, please visit:

If you are currently registered for the webinar, we will give you a priority place in the webinar once it is rescheduled. CGS will send you a new invitation email for the rescheduled webinar. You will need to re-register upon receiving the new invitation.

Best regards,

Council of Graduate Schools
