NEW Funding Opportunities Available:

The American Chemical Society is currently accepting proposals for their Petroleum Research Fund. Multiple submissions are accepted per previous conversation with Program Officer. Please let me know if you have any questions.  LINK TO - ACS Petroleum Research Fund

The Petroleum Research Fund is an endowed fund, managed by the American Chemical Society that supports fundamental research directly related to petroleum or fossil fuels at nonprofit institutions (generally colleges and universities) in the United States and other countries. ACS Petroleum Research Fund (ACS PRF) grants are intended as seed money, to enable an investigator to initiate a new research direction. The investigator should not have published or received financial support from another funding agency for the proposed research. Also, proposals that the ACS PRF Advisory Board feels are a logical extension of an investigator’s previous research may be denied as “not a new direction.”
