Right now thousands of science grad students across the country are unable to access their NSF fellowship applications because of the shutdown. This fellowship provides tuition and stipend for grad students so that they can engage in high risk, cutting edge research, independent of other funding mechanisms. The NSF places particular emphasis on groups that are under-represented in science, so individuals who might not have had the economic or social means to distinguish themselves have an opportunity to jump start their careers.

I knew the GOP hated science, but this is going to kill jobs.
