In 2012 the ACS Petroleum Research Fund committed to new grants totaling $16.2 million. As a result the Fund supports more than 600 active grants at colleges and universities in the United States as well as Canada, Israel, Lebanon, and the United Kingdom.
This ACS PRF grant program usually funds proposals from doctoral departments. The fundamental research proposed must be a new direction for the principal investigator. ND grants are for two years, for a total award of $100,000.
UR grants are exclusively for faculty in departments that do not offer a doctoral degree. The fundamental research proposed must include support for undergraduate students, and M.S. students may also be supported. UR grants are $65,000 over a three-year period.
DNI grants are intended for new faculty members in Ph.D.-granting departments in the United States who are within the first three years of a regular appointment as an Assistant Professor or the equivalent. DNI grants are for $100,000 over a two-year period.
UNI grants are intended for new faculty members at primarily undergraduate institutions in the United States who are within the first three years of a regular appointment as an Assistant Professor or the equivalent. UNI grants are for $50,000 over a two-year period.
There are two SE grants accessible from the Reports TOC. The second one is: 49686-SE: American Chemical Society Scholars Program.
Information on active grant types awarded prior to 2010 but not defined above can be found on the 53rd Annual Report site.
