So here is the problem!
I asked a professor if he is taking any new students and he answered that there is a good chance that he would take me but he is waiting to hear back about his grant application. He said that he will contact me in a week but it has been a week and I didn't receive any emails from him. I want to write an email to check if there is any news but I'm afraid that would be impolite or too pushy.
I want to just politely ask if there are any updates(and make sure that he has not forgotten me!) but I'm not sure how to do it.
I would really appreciate your help and thank you for your time.
