ACS-prf Summer School Deadlines Approach

March 15, 2004 | A version of this story appeared in Volume 82, Issue 11

Organizers of four 2004 summer school programs supported by the ACS Petroleum Research Fund (ACS-PRF) are now accepting applications from graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, early-career faculty, and senior faculty who are planning to change research fields.

Now in its second year, the summer school program is designed to promote interdisciplinary research by helping scientists from diverse fields and disciplines to conduct their own studies in a variety of emerging fields. Four school programs were held last summer.

ACS-PRF, a charitable endowment fund administered by ACS, supports fundamental research in the petroleum field and related fields of pure science. Contact ACS staffer Robert H. Rich at (202) 872-6093 for general information about the fund or the summer school program or send e-mail to Information is also available at
