The Research Office has become aware of the following funding opportunities. Please forward this information to faculty that may be interested.
American Chemical Society (ACS):
- 2013 ACS Green Chemistry Institute (GCI) Pharmaceutical Roundtable Research Grant for Green Fluorination of Pharmaceutically Relevant Organic Molecules
ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable is seeking a 1-year R&D commitment focused on developing greener and safer methods, reagents, or engineering solutions (such as flow chemistry) for the selective fluorination of pharmaceutically relevant organic molecules. Proposals are invited from public and private institutions of higher education worldwide. One grant is planned to be awarded and the total award is limited to $50,000 for a grant period of 12 months. Deadline for receipt of proposals is August 21, 2013 at 5 pm EDT (GMT-4).
- 2013 ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable Research Grant for Non-Precious Metal Catalysis
ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable is seeking a 1-2 year R&D commitment to target identification and development of Non-Precious Metal Catalysis alternatives for widely employed Transition Metal catalyzed cross-coupling reactions, with a focus on substrates that are widely applicable to the pharmaceutical industry. Proposals are invited from public and private institutions of higher education worldwide. This project is intended for a student within the selected Principal Investigator’s research group. One grant is planned to be awarded and the total award is limited to $100,000 for a grant period of 1-2 years. Deadline for receipt of proposals is August 21, 2013 at 5 pm EDT (GMT-4).

American Chemical Society (ACS)
- ACS Petroleum Research Fund (PRF)
While the ACS Petroleum Research Fund 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. Submissions are accepted September 30, 2013 to November 1, 2013.
