the project started in 1968, it has helped more than 7,500 disadvantaged high school students . In
2004, the Society's Office of Graduate Education and the Department of Career Services led the
implementation of the National Science Foundation-sponsored Academic Employment Initiative
The program links graduate students and post-doctorates with career opportunities in various
academic institutions. In 2004, the Society's general chemistry text Chemistry was published .
This innovative first year textbook emphasizes a student-centered, activity-based approach that
presents key concepts in the context of biologically important molecules . The Committee on
Professional Training completed two major outreach and information projects: 1) a workshop with
representatives of historically black colleges and universities to enhance chemistry programs and
encourage more students, and 2) a survey of industrial managers to identify gaps in preparation of
bachelor-degree-chemist hires. In 2004, more than 10,000 undergraduates enrolled in the
Society's Student Affiliates Program and approximately 950 students presented their research at
the Society's 2004 national meetings . In 2004, the Society received grants and awards from
federal government agencies . Much of the funding for the educational programs supported
chemistry-based technician education and programs to promote green chemistry, a science-
based approach to environmental protection, through education, research, international outreach,
and information dissemination A number of grants also supported workshops, seminars, and
academic exchanges with various countries .

The Society's Office of International Activities serves ACS membership, governance and the
community of chemical scientists worldwide, by applying and building international recognition of
the ACS brand and the Society's programs and activities, and catalyzing the development and
growth of ACS alliances with other chemically related organizations abroad. Specific programs
administered by the Once of International Activities include international initiative programs and

professional assessment tools, and salary negotiation techniques The Society presented Career
Resource Centers at both national meetings and several regional meetings Services provided
included the employment clearinghouse, a resource library, resume reviews, mock interviews, and
numerous workshops and presentations . In 2004, the Department of Career Services had more
than 2,775 members signed up at the Career Resource Center . More than 3,207 interviews were
conducted with ACS members . There were 526 members who signed up for one-on-one resume
reviews, 285 members signed up for practice interviews and more than 2,820 participated in
career workshops . For the divisions, local sections and community activities, the Society held
local section leadership conferences with officers from local sections participating and a division
leadership conference that trained ACS members . The Society's membership programs funded
by external sources of revenues provide a forum for the personal exchange of chemical
information and knowledge through regularly scheduled national and international meetings,
expositions, conferences, seminars, panel discussions, and informal technical sessions for the
presentation of research papers. In 2004, the Society's two national meetings had a total
attendance of more than 28,000 people . Around 18,000 research papers were submitted for both
two national meetings and more than 15,500 were accepted for presentation at the two national
meetings . In addition, more than 5,700 people attended eight regional meetings sponsored by the
Society's local sections. In 2004, six ACS ProSpectives conferences were held and attracted over
591 participants . These conferences differ from national meetings in that they are small, cutting-
edge multidisciplinary meetings intended to attract industrial scientists These meetings support
the Society's strategic vision to persuade non-member chemists working along the interface of
chemistry and biology, medicine, physics, materials science, etc, to view ACS as their primary
professional home .

The Office of Diversity Programs is designed to encourage and promote the participation and
leadership of underrepresented minorities, women chemists and younger chemists in the Society
and the discipline . Under the Department of Diversity Programs, the Scholars Program was
established in 1994 for the purpose of providing scholarships to needy, underrepresented
students with good academic records pursuing undergraduate degrees and careers in the
chemical sciences In 2004, the Scholars Program granted support to 341 students, with a total of
approximately $840,000 .    Since its inception, the Scholars program has identified 1,482
scholarship winners and provided $7 .8 million in stipends through year-end 2004.

The Office of Communications serves as the Society's primary public representative Its focus is
aligned with the Society's strategic plan and supports both its charter and the desire of the
membership to communicate with the public about the Society and its activities, as well as
improving the public recognition of, and appreciation for, the contributions of chemistry The office
coordinates the Society's overall media and public relations, and corporate communication
activities . News and information are provided to international, national and local broadcast and

  rants & Allocations : None


Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), a division of the American Chemical Society, is the world's
leader in providing scientists online and Web access to chemistry-related research data . CAS
produces the world's largest and most comprehensive databases of chemical information and
makes them available through sophisticated search and analysis software for the use of scientists
engaged in new product and patent research, as well as academic research in the world's leading
universities . The CAS databases include more than 23 million abstracts of chemistry-related
literature and patents and more than 25 million organic and inorganic substance records .

CAS was founded in 1907 with the aim of monitoring, abstracting, and indexing the world's
chemistry-related literature. This aim was first accomplished through the well known printed
reference work CHEMICAL ABSTRACTS (CA), which CAS continues to publish after more than
97 years CAS began to develop computer-based publication technologies in the 1960's in order
to automate the publication of CA. Today, CAS editorial processes apply the best advantages of
document analysis by highly framed scientists and the benefits of advanced information
technology .

CAS indexes and abstracts patents, articles from approximately 9,500 scientific journals,
conference proceedings, and other documents pertinent to chemistry .            CA is the only
comprehensive reference work of its kind . In 2004 alone, CAS scientists provided abstracts and
indexing for more than 865,000 journal articles, patents, and other research materials, CAS
Registry Numbers and substance records for more than 2 .3 million organic and inorganic
chemicals and 14 9 million sequences Through the printed CA, CA on CD, the STN International
online network, the CAS files distributed through licensed vendors, the SciFinder and SciFinder
Scholar desktop research tools, and the STN Easy or STN on the Web services, data produced

research institutions, and academia . Substance identification is a special strength of CAS, and
CAS Is widely known for the CAS Chemical Registry, the largest substance identification system
in existence . When a chemical substance is newly encountered in the literature processed by
CAS, its molecular structure diagram, systematic chemical name, molecular formula, and other
identifying information are recorded in the Registry and assigned a unique CAS Registry Number .
CAS Registry Numbers are used in reference works, databases, and regulatory compliance
documents by many organizations around the world to identify substances without the ambiguity
of chemical nomenclature .

     In general, the Hoard disapproves (1) the use of the name or the
insignia of the SOCIETY in any way that tends to indicate official
endorsement of commercial products or services, that implies an
endorsement of any business or of its stuff members, or that sug-
gests that membership in the SOCIETY is available t0 any orguni-
xution, and (2) any use of the insignia of the SOCIETY that shows
it in any design other them that described in the SOCII~1'Y's
Constitution, or shows the insignia in contact with, or overlaid by,
other graphics, or shows the insignia smaller than, or in an inferior
relationship to, other insignias. (4-5-92)

SOCIETY and their marketing and promotional communications
shall clearly be identified as being provided by the American
Chemical Society, unless the Executive Director determines that
there is a compelling reason for an exemption from these require-
ments . (9-10-03)
   3.   Contributions . As a matter of policy, the AMERICAN
CHEMICAL SOCIETY does not contribute SOCIETY funds to
health, welfare, or civic organizations, although the SOCIETY may
grant reasonable staff time for participation in United Way cam-
paigns (1-23-91)
   The AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY, n scientific and edu-
cational organization of individual chemical scientists, seeks to
achieve its objectives through programs under the aegis of its gov-
ernance and management . Ordinarily, the SOCIETY does not make
grants to other organizations. In exceptional cases the SOCIE'T'Y
may wish to participate in u large collective project with other sim-
ilar organisations to achieve results that could not be achieved by
the individual organizations acting alone. SOCIETY funds may be
appropriated by the Board in support of such a project only if the
SOCIETY is assured of a degree of control over the project com-
mensurate with its financial contribution . This policy does not
apply to modest contributions (up to $5,000) from initiative activi-
ties under the purview of certain SOCIE'T'Y officers end gover-
nancc committees . (3-28-93)
   4 . Disposition ofOld Files The officers and heads of SOCIETY
activities for which funds are budgeted by the SOCIETY are
authorized and instructed to destroy from time to time, in their dis-
cretion, old and useless papers not of permanent value, m accor-
dance with retention schedules approved by the Executive Director
Unless other requirements apply, or unless otherwise specified by
the Board of Directors, the period of retention of files is seven (7)
years . (1-23-91)

   5 Emblems The Executive Director, with advice from appropn-
ate Council, Society, and Board Committees, is authorized to pro-
cure, fix rules for distributing, and make available to members,
Student Affiliates, and Society Affiliates of the SOCIETY the
emblem of the SOCIETY in such sizes and forms as the Executive
Director deems desirable and for which there is reasonable demand
Any changes m style of the emblem shall be approved by the Board
of Directors (11-2-02)

Establishment of the Fund
On October 26, 1944, through the execution of an agreement arnong Shell Oil Company,
Incorporated ; Standard Oil Company of California ; Standard Oil Company (Indiana); Standard
Oil Company (New Jersey) ; The Texas Company; and N . V. de Bataafsche Petroleum
Maatschappij and Guaranty Trust Company of New York, The Petroleum Research Fund was
established as a charitable, scientific, and educational Trust with tile American Chemical Society
named as the qualified recipient of the net incorne therefrom . The use of funds from the Trust
was prescribed in Article Second of the 1944 Agreement.
         Subsequently, the Phillips Petroleum Company made a substantial contribution to the
Trust . The original contributions of the donors, including that of the Phillips Petroleum
Company, transferred to the Trust Fund all of the outstanding capital stock of Universal Oil
Products Company. On February 4, 1959, the Supreme Court of the State of New York in an
order entered by Mr . Justice Jacob Markowitz approved an application by the Trustee for
authority to sell all of the securities of Universal Oil Products Company then held by the Trustee
and to invest the proceeds of the sale in a diversified portfolio. The sale was made promptly
thereafter. On March 17, 1960, the litigation flowing from the Trustee's application for authority
to sell the securities of Universal Oil Products Company was terminated by the entry of a final
nonappealable order in the Supreme Court of New York . All costs of litigation have since been
paid and the fund in the hands of the Trustee at that time was slightly in excess of $70,000,000.
By reason of the sale the Trust is no longer dependent upon Universal Oil Products Company for
the receipt of income .
         Shortly after tile sale, Guaranty Trust Company was merged with J . P. Morgan &
Company. The merged firm, Morgan GuarantyTrust Company of New York, continued as
Trustee. Immediately, the Trustee requested conferences with the Finance Committee of thc
Society and at these conferences worked out an investment program designed to encompass a
diversified portfolio so as to produce not only a larger income but a more regular income for the
purposes of the Trust. A larger portion of the funds was promptly invested in short-term
government notes so that there would be no loss of income while long-teml investments were
being considered .

Transfer of Trust
In 1998, the ACS Committee on Pensions and Investments recommended that a Study Group be
formed to look into the adequacy of the funds available for the PRF grant program . I n 1999,
following a recommendation of the Study Group, ACS began discussions with the Trustee to
explore changing the terms of the Trust to allow ACS to receive a fixed percentage of the Fund
value as income each year rather than simply the "net income" as specified in the 1944
agreement. In January 2000, counsel for the rrustee filed a Petition in the Supreme Court of
New York to amend the terms of the Trust to allow for a payout of 5% of the year-end market
value of the Fund . The New York Attorney General, who is a necessary party to any Petition
affecting the Trust, announced his office's objection to altering the terms of the Trust . However,
in its review of the Trust, the New York Attorney General recognized that the Trust could be
dissolved under its own terms and suggested that route to obtain the goal of the Petition . In a
meeting in July 2000, representatives of ACS, the Trustee, and the New York Attorney General
confirmed that the Trust could be dissolved and moved from New York to Washington, DC, as
long as the purposes of the original Trust instrument were maintained and the administration of
the funds from the Trust were subject to acceptable oversight authority.
         On October 25, 2000 an Agreement of Transfer of Trust creating The American
Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund was signed by Morgan Guaranty Trust Company of
New York, the American Chemical Society, and the Attorney General for die state of New York,
and "so ordered" by the Supreme Court of the State of New York. The new agreement allows
for a payout of up to 5% of the three-year average year-end market value of the Fund in place of
the net income provision contained in the original agreement. The Transfer Agreement retains
the same purpose as the original 1944 Trust Agreement. The use of monies derived from this
Fund is prescribed in Article Second of the Agreement of Transfer ofTrust which reads as
follows :

       The purposes for which the Annual Amount (as hereinafter defined), or any part
       thereof, shall be used by any Recipient thereof, and the conditions subject to
       which any such payment or distribution is made, are as follows:
                (a) The Recipient shall use all funds so paid or distributed to it exclusively
       for advanced scientific education and fundamental research in the "petroleum
       field," which may include any field of pure science which in the judgment of the
       Transferee may afford a basis for subsequent research directly connected with the
       petroleum field. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, such education
       and research may include the exchange of scientists and university scientific
       students between American and foreign non-profit scientific or educational
       institutions, such as universities, and services incidental to fundamental research
       such as the translation of scientific literature relating to the petroleum field . The
       term "petroleum field" as used herein embraces (1) exploration for, and the
       production, transportation and refining of, petroleum, petroleum products and
       natural gas, and (2) the production and refining of substitutes for petroleum and
       petroleum products from natural gas, coal, shale, tar sands and like materials.
                (b) Such advanced scientific education shall be carried on by or under the
       direction of the Transferee or may be delegated by the Transferee to other non-

      profit scientific or educational institutions, such as universities, to be selected by
      the Transferee.
               (c) Such research shall be conducted by or under the direction of the
      Transferee or the conduct of particular research projects may be delegated by the
      Transferee to other non-profit scientific or educational institutions, such Lis
      universities, to be selected by the Transferee, but none of the results ofany such
      research shall be turned into profit by the Transferee or any Recipient or any such
      institution to which the conduct of any project shall be so delegated .
               (d) Comprehensive reports of such research shall be made available by the
      Transferee periodically, at least once in each year, to the public at large.
               (e) All publications of the results of such research shall give credit to the
      original Donors who created the 1944 Fund.
               (~ Every patent, United States or foreign, that shall be taken out by or on
      behalf of the Transferee, any Recipient or by or on behalf of any individual or
      institution acting at the direction of or on behalf of the Transferee or any
      Recipient in carrying out such research shall be immediately dedicated to the
      public, royalty free.
               (g) The Transferee may invite proposals for research projects, or for
      educational or scientific work connected therewith, including proposals for
      fellowships .
               (h) All direct or indirect expenses in connection with the above mentioned
      scientific education and research may be paid or reimbursed to the Transferee or
      Recipient out of any funds distributed or becoming distributable by the
      Transferee, but the Transferee or Recipient shall not devote any such funds to its
      ordinary expenses or any other purpose not expressly authorized by this
      Agreement.
               The object of this Agreement is to create a fund to advance the public
      welfare in accordance with the laws of tile District of Columbia relating to
      endowment funds, and no part of the principal or income of the Fund Account
      shall at any time inure to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual, nor
      shall it be used to carry on propaganda or otherwise attempt to influence
       legislation. The detailed purposes hereinabove stated shall be construed and
      given effect accordingly .
               Nothing herein shall be deemed to prevent the Transferee, in its discretion,
       from investing any part of the Annual Amount (as hereinafter defined) pending
      determination by it of the best application to be made of such funds.

The PRF Program of the American Chemical Society
Between 1944 and 1953 income received from tile operations of Universal was insufficient to
justif~ the implementation of any program as contemplated by Article Second of theTrust
Agreement. No dividends were paid by Universal in any of those years, and such income as was
received carne principally from interest on debentures issued after a recapitalization of the
company effectcd with court approval in 1946 . Pursuant to the authority expressed in Article
Second, this income was invested by the Society.
         In 1953, the Board of Directors of the Society initiated plans for putting tile money thus
accumulated to work . A 13-membcr Advisory Board was appointed to assist in the development
of the program and to make recommendations on specific allocation of funds. In accord with
 paragraphs (b), (c) and (g) of Article Second of the Trust Agreement it was decided to delegate
 the conduct of advanced scientific education and fundamental research to educational
 institutions, such as universities and colleges, and to invite proposals for research programs as a
 basis for making grants for advanced scientific education and fundamental research in the
 "petroleum field." In December 1970, the Board recommended that institutions eligible to
 receive PRF grants include nonprofit scientific and educational institutions that do not have
 formal degree granting programs . Proposals for research support for scientists at such institutions
 would be considered by the Advisory Board in accordance with existing criteria .
         On March 26, 1954, at a joint meeting of the Executive Committee of the Board of
 Directors and the Petroleum Research Fund Advisory Board sorne general criteria were adopted
 which would be used in judging proposals. These criteria were modified in 2000 and are listed
 on page iv .
         The first PRF grants and fellowships were awarded in 1954 . For the next two years the
 program was under active review and with the substantial increase of income in 1955, 1956, and
 1957 the grants program was expanded .
          By 1957 six types of grants had been approved by the Board of Directors (Types A, B, C,
 D, E, F). The Type F program was discontinued by action of the Board in 1962 . In 1963 the
 program of "Starter Grants" (Type G) for new faculty investigators was started. In mid-] 968, the
 Board of Directors approved replacement of the Type A and Type C programs by the Type AC
 grant program, which contained some features of both former programs . Effective in the fall of
  1970, the Board suspended the small programs of assistance for faculty sabbatical research and
 study (Types D and E) until such time as there arises a compelling need for reinstating them .
          PRF programs operated for limited periods include PRF Graduate Fellowships and PR.F
 Postdoctoral Fellowship Supplements. Two hundred PRF Graduate Fellowships were authorized
 for the academic years 1968-69 and 1969-70, funded by a onetime authorization of $1,000,000 .
  PRF Postdoctoral Fellowship Supplements were authorized in December 1971 for the conversion
 of budgeted but unfilled graduate fellowships to postdoctoral fellowships in certain PRF Type
  AC grants . This program was carried out with $200,000 authorized for payment in 1972 .
          Eight PRF Grants for New Directions in Fundamental Research with a total value of
  $651,426 were made in 1978 and 1979 . This program was discontinued by the Board of
  Directors in June 1979 .
          In June 1972 the Board of Directors approved a program of PRF Special Educational
  Opportunities Grants to assist with activities not comprised within already approved PRF
  programs but which represent significant contributions to "advanced scientific education and
  fundamental research in the 'petroleum field"'. This program is similar to an earlier "special"

program for which the last grant activity was in 1970 . In August 1975, further action of the
Board of Directors was intended to encourage use of the PRF SEO grants to support a greater
diversity of activities, particularly science education projects of a more innovative or
experimental character . In June of 198 1, the name of the SEO program was changed to PRF
Type SE grants . All activities which received SEO funding remained eligible for consideration .
        In grant year 2004, 81 new Type SE grants were approved, providing assistance for
scientific symposia, special conferences, and programs directed toward disadvantaged students .
A grant of $35,000 was awarded to Project SE ED, to enable disadvantaged high school students
to participate in ongoing PR.F-assisted research projects at colleges or universities near their
homes. Eighty grants, totaling $261,300 were made in partial support of travel expenses of key
invited foreign speakers in symposia at ACS National and Regional Meetings, and at meetings
sponsored by other organizations.
        In 198 1, a competition was authorized to provide supplements to ongoing PRF grant
projects for Summer Research Fellowships (SRF) to enable faculty and students from
undergraduate colleges to participate in PRF-assisted research . The student portion of this
program concluded in 1991 . The fellowships for faculty continue and thirty grant supplements of
$8,000 were awarded to support faculty visitors for the summer of 2004.
         In 1991 the Undergraduate Research Supplement program was instituted as a
replacement to the SRF program for students. Any eligible AC or G applicant from a doctoral
department of a United States institution could apply at the time of submission of the AC or G
grant application for an additional $3,000 for the sole purpose of including an undergraduate
researcher in the proposed research program. This program was discontinued in 1993 .
         The transfer of the Trust in 2000 to the American Chemical Society and tile concurrent
change in the payout fon-nula resulted in the availability of additional funds, and tile Board of
Directors approved three new Pilot Programs : ACS PRF Alternative Energy Postdoctoral
 Fellowships with a value of $50,000 per year for two years; ACS PRF Summer Schools in topics
on the cutting edge of science with a value up to $125,000 ; and ACS PRF Undergraduate Faculty
 Sabbaticals, a matching grant program for research sabbaticals of one year with a value up to
 $50,000 . The first grants for these programs were awarded in 2003 .

 Petroleum Research Fund                                10               Annual Report on Research
                                                                                   Att2chmenl 24 Page 11 of 44




Policies and Ground Rules
Starting with the considerations at thejoint niecting of tile Executive Committee of the Board of
Directors and the Petroleum Research Fund Advisory Board on March 26, 1954, criteria for the
evaluation of proposals and program policies have been constantly reviewed by tile Advisory
Board and the Committee on Grants and Awards of the ACS Board of Directors to provide tile
best possible grants program in accord with the objectives of the Trust and Transfer Agreements .
In 2000, these criteria were reviewed by the American Chemical Society Petroleurn Research
Fund Advisory Board and the following staternent was adopted :

       Nature and Scope of the Research: ACS PRF Research Grants are made to non-
       profit institutions for regularly appointed scientists whose research may be
       sponsored in accordance with the PRF Transfer Agreement:
               "ACS PRF shall use all funds exclusively for advanced scientific
       education and fundamental research in the 'petroleum field,' which may include
       any field of pure science which in the judgment of (ACS PRF) may afford a basis
       for subsequent research directly connected with the petroleum field ."
               Note that./undamenial research is required as opposed to applied research
       or methods development. The proposed research need not be directly connected to
       petrole'um, but rather may provide a basisfor subsequent research directly
       connected with the petroleumfield.

       Funding Criteria : The ACS PRF Advisory Board makes relative rankings of
       proposals, and recommendations for funding, on the basis of the following
       criteria :
                 (1) The overall quality, significance, and scientific merit of the proposed
       research, including the extent to which it will increase basic knowledge and/or
       stimulate additional research .
                 (2) The extent to which advanced scientific education will be enhanced
       through the involvement of students in the research .
                 (3) The qualifications or potential of the principal investigator(s) and
       adequacy of the facilities to conduct the research.
                 (4) The extent to which the proposed research represents a new or
        independent area of investigation for the principal investigator(s).
                  (5) The impact of PRF funding the research, including the effect on the
        principal investigator's overall research program and financial needs. For
        example, established scientists are not encouraged to seek additional support from
        ACS PRF for research that has substantial current funding.

       To provide the best possible atmosphere for imaginative fundamental research in the
petroleum field, the following program and administrative policies were in effect during the
period covered by this report :

        (1) The principal investigator is encouraged to present venturesome programs and
                                 0
        to avoid the "sure-fire" neat little problems which can always be solved .
               (2) Most ACS PRF research grants are made originally for two- or three-
        year periods . Continued support for research on the same or a different topic may

                                                                                     Auaclunent 24 Page l 2 of 44




      be requested by presenting a new proposal which will be evaluated in competition
      with all other proposals. Because of limited available funds each principal
      investigator is limited to one ACS PRF research grant at a time.
               (3) Each principal investi8ator is informed that he or she is not required to
      follow the specific details of the research plan as proposed, particularly if
      promising leads develop that seem likely to be more productive than the project
      proposed originally . The Advisory Board requests, however, that the principal
      investigator inform it of such new plan if it deviates markedly from that described
      in the original proposal .
               (4) Fellowship or graduate assistantship stipends paid from ACS 131V
      grants shall not exceed the amount which regular graduate teaching assistants
      receive for the academic year from the department after payment of tuition and
      fees, if any. In addition to stipends, regularly required tuition may be added in
      accord with institutional policy . Such tuition requests shall be itemized separately .
               (5) To encourage further research activities and instill a desire to pursue
      graduate studies, undergraduate students are encouraged to participate in research
      programs with faculty members and graduate students .
                (6) To provide the opportunity for full-time research during the summer
      months, principal investigators at institutions in the United States may request
      contributions to summer salary and related benefits . Under guidelines effective in
      the period of this report, the maximum contribution under new grants was $7,500
      per summer for Types AC, B, and Type G grants .
               (7) ACS PkF Types AC and G grants may be used to support postdoctoral
       fellows, graduate students, and/or undergraduates .
               (8) ACS PRF Type B grants may not be used to support postdoctoral
       fcllows or graduate students.
               (9) The need for adequate equipment to perform the proposed research is
       recognized, and will be considered when properly justified . The cost of major
       items of equipment should usually be shared by the institution at which the
       research is to be done.
               (10) Investigators whose research is supported by ACS PRF grants are
       required annually to submit reports on research progress, expenditures, and
       participation in grant projects by students and/or postdoctoral fellows, as well as
       to provide complete bibliographical information on all articles, books, reviews
       and reports in which full or partial ACS PRF support is acknowledged .
                (11) To provide a degree of freedom in departmental research activities,
       the PRF provides an option for a departmental allocation of $500 per grant year to
       each ACS PRF Type AC and Type B grant, to be used for any research- related
       purposes of the department . Departmental allocations are not provided on grants
       made to colleges and universities outside the United States . Institutional overhead
       or administrative charges may not be charged to ACS PRF grants .
                (12) Social security, retirement, workers' compensation, and other similar
       payments based on salaries budgeted in an ACS PRF grant may be charged as
       direct expenses .
                (13) When a principal investigator moves from one university to another
       the grant may be transferred to the new institution .

                                                                                          Attachment 24 Page 13 of 44




                 ( 14) In the interest of using granted funds most efficiently, L111CXpended
        funds at the end of an annual grant period may be carried forward into the next
        period . An extension of time without additional funds may be granted oil request
        at the termination of the current grant agreement, for a maximum of two ycars of
        time extension .

         Even though these approved program policies serve as guidance standards, tile need for
flexibility was realized . None of the procedures or rules established at tile beginning of the
program or since has been permitted to act as a straitjacket in the consideration of proposals. The
criteria and policies of the prograrn remain under constant review by the Advisory Board and the
Committee on Grants and Awards . Application forms for currently active grant programs may be
obtained from the ACS PRF office or via the web site: chemistry .org/prf. These forms are
regularly revised to incorporate any recent changes in procedure or policy .
         To achieve some uniformity in handling proposals and existing grants it was decided to
adopt the school year, and all grant budgets are set up so as to end on the 3 1 st of August .
Normally the Advisory Board meets three times a year, in October, February, and May.
Proposals must be received in the PRF office at least five months prior to the meeting date in
order to be considered . Current ACS PRF regulations require an applicant whose Type AC
proposal is not recommended for funding to wait twelve months before the Advisory Board will
consider another AC proposal . Each grant application must be approved by an administrative
officer of the institution employing the applicant. In order to expedite the handling of proposals
of all types except for SE and the Pilot Programs, 18 copies must be submitted to The American
Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund, 1155 Sixteenth Street, NW, Washington, DC
20036 .
         The proposal with the budget as modified by recommendations frorn the Advisory Board
becomes a part of an agreement between the Society and the grantee institution . The agreement
sets forth details and the conditions under which the ACS PRF grants are made. If the principal
investigator subsequently wishes to make a change from the approved budget, prior approval
must be obtained from tile ACS PRF Program Officer. An annual financial statement of
expenditures of ACS PRF grant funds is required .
         Subparagraphs (b) and (c) of Article Second of the Transfer Agreement require that the
advanced scientific education and fundamental research contemplated by the Agreement shall be
carried on either under the immediate direction of the Society or delegated by it to other
nonprofit scientific and educational institutions such as universities . Except for a relatively small
number of grants to assist with special meetings and symposia, all grants to date have been made
to academic or scientific institutions in support of a faculty or staff member's research program
which has been selected on the recommendation of the Advisory Board.
         When possible, grantees are visited some time during their grant ten-n by program staff.
These visits are not made to attempt any sort of supervision or direction of the research, but to
enable the staff to get first-hand information on the status of the grant.

ACS Committee on Gran ts an d A wards
The ACS Board of Directors in 1957 created a special standing Committee of the Board of
Directors on Petroleum Research which in 1959 became the standing Committee on Grants and
Fellowships. In 1971 the responsibilities of the Committee were transferred to the new Board
Committee on Grants and Awards. The assignment of the Committee, relative to The Petroleum

Research Fund, is given in Regulation 111, 8 of the Constitution, Bylaws, and Regulations of the
ACS as follows:

         The Committee on Grants and Awards shall be responsible for the proper
         discharge by the ACS of its responsibilities as the recipient of money from The
         Petroleum Research FundTrust- The Committee also is authorized to set up all
         Advisory Board and such other committees as it deerns necessary, determine the
         size of such bodies and terms of appointment thereto, and recommend necessary
         appointments to the Chair of the Board . The Committee shall act on behalf of the
         Board in determining types of grants and in approving standards and conditions
         thereof. It may authorize specific grants within the amounts made available for
         such purposes, on recommendation ofThc Petroleum Research Fund Advisory
         Board.

The PRF Advisory Board
In 1954 the Board of Directors appointed the Petroleum Research Fund Advisory Board
consisting of 13 members .
        The periodic public announcements of grants made and other publicity, resulting in a
more widely spread knowledge about the PRF program, greatly increased tile number of
applications for support . At each meeting the Advisory Board considers more than 500
proposals, which makes it impossible for each member to study in detail all proposals . To meet
the needs of this situation, the Board of Directors in 1958 authorized an increase in the number
of members on the Advisory Board to 18 . In 1962 it was increased to 2 1, in 1978 to 24, in 1985
to 25, in 1988 to 27, in 1993 to 29, and in 2003 to 30, to deal with significant growth in the
number of proposals . The enlarged Advisory Board is split into a number of smaller committees,
each of which has assigned to it research proposals falling within certain fields . This plan of
committee assignment reduces considerably the number of proposals requiring intensive study
by the Advisory Board as a whole and facilitates the administration of the program.
