Approx­i­mate­ly 40–50 par­tic­i­pants will receive sup­port depend­ing on avail­able fund­ing. This sup­port is made pos­si­ble by grants from the Nation­al Sci­ence Foun­da­tion — Catal­y­sis and Kinet­ics Pro­gram, Depart­ment of Ener­gy — Office of Sci­ence, the North Amer­i­can Catal­y­sis Soci­ety, and indus­try con­trib­u­tors (see the GRC web­site for an updat­ed list as this sup­port becomes avail­able).
