From the Director

Driven by excellent expense management in the year 2010, the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund (ACS PRF) sustained slow financial recovery. We estimate that we will not fully recover financially until the year 2014. Accordingly, ACS PRF continues its cost-saving actions by only considering proposals in our four core fundamental research grant programs: New Directions (ND) grants, Doctoral New Investigator (DNI) grants, Undergraduate Research (UR) grants, and Undergraduate New Investigator (UNI) grants.   Full message from the director...
