Google Summer of Code (GSoC) will begin accepting student applications on March 12, 2018. The global, online program is designed to engage university students with open source software communities.
GSoC is a highly competitive and unique program – in the past 13 years it has had over 13,000 students from 108 countries accepted into the program. Participants are paired with a mentor to help introduce them to an open source community and guide them with their project. GSoC gives students invaluable real world experience and an opportunity to receive a stipend to contribute to open source software during their summer break from university.
For the 2018 program, Google have accepted 212 open source organisations. Now is a great time for students to check out project ideas and reach out to the organisations to learn more!
