ACS will soon offer two opportunities for grant applicants: one in the spring/summer, and the other in the summer/fall. For projects that are encouraged to advance to the final stage, planning grants will be available for use between the pre-proposal and final proposal deadlines. Requests for planning grants are made on the pre-proposal form.
Please note that:
- Only projects vetted as pre-proposals can advance to the final proposal stage.
- We will not accept pre-proposals after the deadlines indicated below. ACS set the Cycle I deadline to fall after spring breaks to give potential grantees time to finish their pre-proposals.
ACS outreach efforts are ongoing on our member campuses. If there are groups, committees, or individuals who would like to explore grant opportunities in more detail, please email email@example.com. In consultation with your dean/provost and grants officer, we are happy to visit your campus to learn more about your goals and explore funding possibilities.
