Manage Your PRF Grant

PRF Grant Management Portal

Petroleum Research Fund has established a new web portal for grantees to perform administrative activities such as annual reports for active grants.

If your organization had an active grant during the 2021 launch of the new portal, the Principal Investigator will have received instructions on registering for portal access and submitting annual reports. 

View the Help Guide for using the new grant portal.

*Note: the grant management portal requires you to login with your ACS Member ID. If you do not yet have an ACS ID, you will be prompted to register for free.

All reports due by October 1, 2021
