Green Chemistry Grants

A primary objective of the ACS Green Chemistry Institute® (ACS GCI) is to advance research in green chemistry by promoting funding, increasing opportunities, and developing information on the benefits of green chemistry. 

ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable Grants

The ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable has identified key synthetic chemistry and process research challenges whose solutions would result in more efficient pharmaceutical process development and production. To spur research in these areas, the Roundtable established a research grant program in 2007 that has funded over $2 million to date.

Grant Cycle

  • Spring: Roundtable issues request for proposals on select topics.
  • Summer: Proposals are due in early summer and the Roundtable sends acceptance notifications by late summer.
  • Fall: Research commences upon transfer of funds. Grants typically last 6-12 months.

ACS Petroleum Research Fund

While the ACS Petroleum Research Fund (PRF) does not have a specific category of green chemistry research, it has supported several green chemistry projects. The program welcomes applicants with high quality fundamental research in the petroleum or fossil fuels fields that may have a "green" focus.
