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 Petroleum Research Fund

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

ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable Research Grants

Request for Proposals

The ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable will provide $25,000 in ‘ignition’ funding for up to four proposals. Proposals on any chemistry or engineering topics relevant to green and sustainable discovery and manufacture of pharmaceutical products will be considered; however, a list of key green chemistry and engineering research areas has been previously published by the ACS GCIPR and represents areas of particular interest. Deadline for receipt of proposals is August 19, 2016 at 5 PM EDT (GMT-4).
