  1. Does anyone know if Sub-Saharan Africa was like majorly slashed in terms of funding? I know some seriously qualified people who were also (NS); and I see no one on the doc updating with their success. EDIT: I realize that I sound naive commenting on their qualification -- but what I mean is that these are individuals that I truly cannot imagine would be hindered for any reason whatsoever besides factors related to funding (in which case I would've expected (A), their identities, or research topics. Most significantly, I wonder if their status as undergraduates is an issue? I am just so very confused. Is this a bad dream?
  2. It will be okay. I am just trying to wrap my head around it. Is this real? Them notifying SSA in March? Feels so out of the blue. The disbelief is leaving me and I am starting to feel devastated!
  3. FYI South Africa notified me of being not selected.... trying to not be totally devastated.
  4. I can't explain the joy it brings me to witness all of your successes on this forum. This wait is excruciating but if nothing else, one perk of being notified late April is the happiness I get to watch until then!
  5. Congratulations!
  6. Never forget the person who obviously trolled the Spain ETAs yesterday! Fingers crossed
  7. Congratulations!!!!
  8. I went on twitter to scope things out, and all I learned was that the next application cycle opens before I'm even projected to find out!!!! Lol
  9. I'm not supposed to hear for a month and I still check my email every 20 minutes. Lol
  10. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  11. congrats!!!!!
  12. I realize this is an overdue question and it was briefly discussed a while ago -- but do any of you with research affiliations think that Fulbright commissions are checking in with your proposed PIs at host universities?
  13. Research in South Africa!

  15. This email had no chill!
