The Carolyn E. Green Scholarship to support women working or studying in Life Sciences was set up as a 501(c)3 non-profit in 2017 by close friends and family of the late Carolyn E. Green. In 2019, four Scholarship and mentoring Awards were celebrated in a Fall event hosted by Carolyn’s last associated employer, Pfizer, Inc. at their prestigious offices in Cambridge, MA.


The 2022 Awards are currently underway and the Board is eager to encourage eligible applicants and would be grateful if you could share this information as widely as possible within your organization and professional network.
