We excited to announce Google Summer of Code 2010!  Google Summer of Code is a program designed to encourage student participation in open source development and offers these developers stipends to write code for various open source projects. Google will be working with several open source, free software and technology-related groups to identify and fund several projects over a three month period.

Historically, the program has brought together over 3,400 students around the globe with over 200 open source projects, to create millions of lines of code. We are contacting you to invite your students and encourage them to apply and participate!

Here at Google, we want to inspire young developers to begin participating in open source development. Google Summer of Code provides opportunities for students in Computer Science and related fields to work on projects related to their academic pursuits. Students who successfully execute on their project proposals will receive a 5000 USD stipend. No travel is required as part of the program, as all work for the program occurs online.

We will be accepting student applications from March 29 - April 9, 2010. Students should plan to take a look at the website on March 18, 2010 to see which open source, free software and technology-related groups will be acting as mentoring organizations for the program this year.
