Friday, Fulbright and Rhodes

Earlier this year, we heard that Sarp Centel, one of our 2007 Summer of Coders working with the OpenMRS project, would be attending Georgia Tech on a Fulbright Scholarship. This week, we got some more fantastic news: Wojciech Gryc, who you may remember from our earlier post on Spreading Open Source in Africa, wrote in to let us know that he had just been awarded a Rhodes Scholarship. You can read more about Wojciech's accomplishments from the news site of his alma mater, the University of Toronto at Scarborough.

We want to congratulate Sarp and Wojciech on receiving these prestigious scholarships, and wish them every continued success!

And for our final bit of Friday news, those of you wondering about the latest and greatest on the Google Highly Open Participation Contest, check out yesterday's video update on the Google Code Blog.

We hope all of you are as elated by all these happenings as we are. Care to share your thoughts with us in the comments section?
