Shark Tank has become a big hit at our education conference. In years past, four to five finalists have been selected to present proposals to our panel of Education Scholarship Sharks, who then distributed $10,000 among the project(s). It's always possible that the best proposal might get it all, or it might be divided among projects!
This is a great opportunity to receive feedback from recognized educational experts, understand the kinds of things expert review panels consider, and get funding for a medical/biomedical/health education project.
How Shark Tank Works
Selected proposal presenters will have ten minutes to make a virtual presentation, with or without PowerPoint slides. After each presenter has answered pointed questions and worked with the sharks, a final proposal or proposals will be awarded the money.
ONLY JHU SOM member are eligible to apply.
