Healthcare is constantly growing and changing in many ways, making it one of the most interesting fields to enter as a career. Even people who don't plan to devote their lives to health professions often find themselves following medical advances with interest. A major step in the evolution of healthcare in coming years will be the adoption of medical software that will allow for more universal recordkeeping and hopefully better patient care. This week's Scholarship of the Week gives current college students an opportunity to research this topic in depth for the chance to win $2,500.
To encourage college students in all disciplines to think and write about this topic, Claricode is sponsoring a scholarship essay contest asking students to discuss the potential of medical software in essays of 500 to 1,000 words. Essays will be judged on the following criteria: idea development, clarity of vision, creativity, practicality, and spelling and grammar.
Prize: First place: $2,500; Second place: $1,500; Third place: $1,000
Eligibility: Any U.S. citizen or resident age 18 and up who is currently enrolled full-time in an accredited degree program and will remain enrolled full-time when the scholarship is awarded in January 2010. Applications are welcome from students in all areas of study.
Deadline: October 31, 2009
Required Material: Completed scholarship application and scholarship essay of 500-1000 words addressing the question, "How will medical software improve the future?"
Further details about the application process can be found by conducting a free college scholarship search on Scholarships.com. Once the search is completed, students eligible for this scholarship award will find it in their search results.
