Google Summer of Code 2020 now open for student applications!

Monday, March 16, 2020
If you’re a university student and want to sharpen your software development skills while doing good for the open source community, check out 

Google Summer of Code

 (GSoC) 2020! This will be our 16th year of GSoC!

We are now accepting student applications for our program that introduces university students from around the world to open source software communities, as well as our enthusiastic and generous community of mentors. For three months students code from the comfort of their homes (the program is entirely online!) and receive stipends based on the successful completion of their project milestones.

Past participants say the real-world experience that GSoC provides honed their technical skills, boosted their confidence, expanded their professional network, and enhanced their resume, all while making them better developers.

Interested students can submit proposals on the 

program site

 between now and Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at 18:00 UTC.

While many students began preparing in February when we 

announced the 200 participating open source organizations

, it’s not too late for you to start! The first step is to browse the 

list of organizations

 and look for project ideas that appeal to you. Next, reach out to the organization to introduce yourself and determine if your skills and interests are a good fit. Since spots are limited, we recommend writing a strong proposal and submitting a draft early so you can communicate with the organization and get their feedback to increase your odds of being selected.

University Students

Spend your summer break writing code and learning about open source development while earning a stipend! Accepted students work with a mentor and become a part of the open source community. Many become lifetime open source developers!
