Congratulations to our 14 students who passed their final evaluations for Google Summer of Code 2015!

We’ve been very proud of our students each year, and this year is no exception. Many of our students have stayed involved with the project as contributors, many have become mentors, and some have even made OpenMRS part of their careers after university!

A big thanks to the students and mentors listed above for not only their efforts in their individual projects, but for becoming important members of the OpenMRS community. We’re glad you’re here, and we’re looking forward to your future contributions! Finally, a special thanks to each of the mentors listed above — they volunteered time out of their busy schedules to help our students learn how to be productive open source citizens, as well as providing them technical guidance with their projects. They couldn’t have done it without you!
