Pfizer and Skin of Color Society (SOCS) Foundation Fellowship Grant
Pfizer Global Medical Grants (GMG) supports the global healthcare community’s independent initiatives (e.g., research, quality improvement or education) to improve patient outcomes in areas of unmet medical need that are aligned with Pfizer’s medical and/or scientific strategies. Pfizer’s GMG competitive grant program involves a publicly posted request for proposal (RFP) that provides detail regarding a specific area of interest, sets timelines for review and approval, and uses an external review panel (ERP). Institutions are invited to submit an application as outlined in the specific RFP. The Skin of Color Society was established to promote awareness of and excellence within skin of color dermatology through research, education, mentorship, and advocacy. The Society is committed to increasing diversity and inclusion in the field of dermatology to advance patient care.
