The scholarship recipients also will attend our Social Media Health Network member meeting that week, and will participate in a panel discussion. They also will be invited to participate in our first Social Media Residency.
Now the 15 finalists will move on to be considered by a panel of judges, mostly drawn from our Advisory Board. We expect to name the scholarship recipients later next week.
Thanks to the 35 candidates who submitted their essays, and to everyone who visited our Mayo Clinic community site to vote. If you'd like to check out the essays, see the Scholarship Contest category in the community's Discussions section.
