What’s the situation?

Post by DanSMART »

Hi, all.

Does anyone have intel into whether COVID-19 has affected the pace of the SMART program’s decision for this year? Additionally, my probable sponsoring facility said the current situation will probably have no bearing on funding, as the fiscal budget was already secured for this year.

I can't imagine that it will affect the timeline any, or the amount of awards given. only thing I see it affect is those currently in the program and about to graduate. They may not be able to start working at their SFs right away, because there is a hiring freeze for the government right now. internships for this summer will be affected too im sure. But as far as us applicants, i wouldnt worry too much, except for worrying if whether or not we got the award lol.
