OSP's July Featured Funding Opportunity

Fri, 1 Jul 2016 12:00 AM - Sun, 31 Jul 2016 11:59 PM

ACS Petroleum Research Fund

ACS Petroleum Research Fund (ACS PRF) grants are intended as seed money, to enable an investigator to initiate a new research direction rather than an extension of an investigator's previous research. 

Due Date: Submission window is September 19, 2016 - Friday, October 21, 2016 

Scope of the Fund

Proposals must be for fundamental research in "the petroleum field," which is defined as "petroleum, natural gas, coal, shale, tar sands and like materials." Fundamental research encompasses the properties of these materials, whereas the petroleum industry undertakes "applied research," which is outside the scope of ACS PRF. See our list of Research Topics that are supported and not supported by ACS PRF.
