American Chemical Society's Grant Programs: Research Grants for Non-Doctoral Departments

ACS PRF research grant programs support fundamental research in the petroleum field, and development of the next generation of engineers and scientists through advanced scientific education. Research areas supported include chemistry, the earth sciences, chemical and petroleum engineering, and related fields such as polymers and materials science. Membership in the American Chemical Society is not a requirement or a factor in awarding ACS PRF grants.

Proposals Submission Window: 2/13/2017 - 3/17/2017

Please note the following limitations to applying for either the Undergraduate Research (UR) program and the Undergraduate New Investigator (UNI) Program: 

  • A principal investigator (lead PI or Co-PI) may have only one research proposal active or under consideration per meeting. 
  • Principal investigators (lead PI or Co-PI) may not hold more than one active PRF research grant at a time. 
  • Principal investigators (lead PI or Co-PI) with an active PRF research grant, including a grant on time extension, may not submit an application for a new grant. 
  • (Only applies to UR program): Principal investigators (lead PI or Co-PI) may have only one UR grant application considered in a 12-month period. Thus, a principal investigator (lead PI or Co-PI) who has an UR proposal denied may not submit another UR proposal until the Advisory Board meeting one year later.
