7 percent. For resubmission the success rate was considerably higher, near 20 percent.
For the first 100 questionnaires returned, 15 applicants were funded and 85 were unfunded. All of the funded recipients remained in academia, while about one-sixth of unsuccessful applicants had positions outside academia.
An assessment of research project grants has just begun. ACS will continue to analyze the data it currently has and will continue to send questionnaires to all applicants and to use other search methods to find missing addresses. ACS will also continue to compare the characteristics of applicants who received funding with those who did not to determine if the program has had an impact on career development.
