Applications are being accepted for the Herman Frasch Fund for Chemical Research Grants in Agricultural Chemistry for 2017–22. These grants support projects promising practical benefit to agricultural development in the U.S. Competitions for Frasch grants occur at five-year intervals.

The ACS Committee on Frasch Foundation Grants expects to recommend approximately eight new grants of $50,000 per year for the five-year period. The 2017–22 grants will begin on July 1, 2017.
