Google Summer of Code 2016 (GSoC) is well underway and we’ve already seen some impressive numbers — all record highs!
- 18,981 total registered students (up 36% from 2015)
- 17.34% female registrants
- 142 countries
- 5107 students submitting 7,543 project proposals
Student proposals are currently being reviewed by over 2300 mentors and organization administrators from the 180 participating mentor organizations. We will announce accepted students on April 22, 2016 on the Open Source blog and on the program site.
Last week, members of the Google Open Source Programs team attended FOSSASIA in Singapore, Asia’s premier open technology event, to talk about GSoC and Google Code-in. There, we met dozens of former GSoC and GCI students and mentors who were excited to embark on another great year. To learn more about Google Summer of Code, please visit our program site.
