How to Nominate

Call for 2022 Nominations Extended

The ACS-Pfizer Award nomination website is open through March 11, 2022.

There are six award categories for which an individual can be nominated: humanitarian, academic global surgeon, domestic volunteerism, international volunteerism, military, and resident.

Nominators should also be aware of the following:

  • Self-nominations are permissible and encouraged. Such nominations require at least two outside letters of recommendation. One of the letters must be submitted by a Fellow of the College. In addition, self-nominators must submit three references that the Workgroup may contact. It is required that at least one reference also be a Fellow of the College.
  • Re-nomination of a previous nominee is acceptable and encouraged. A resubmission requires completion of a new application. Applicants are encouraged to consider adding additional details and supporting narratives to strengthen their application.
  • The Workgroup reserves the right to move a nominee from one category to another based on review of the application.
