Our 12th year of Google Summer of Code (GSoC) has officially begun! GSoC is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development. Students work with an open source organization on a three month programming project during their break from university.

Do you represent a free or open source software organization looking for new contributors? Do you love the challenge and reward of mentoring new developers in your community? Apply to be a mentor organization for GSoC! Starting today we will be accepting applications from open source projects who would like to serve as mentor organizations for enthusiastic student developers.

The deadline to apply is February 19 at 19:00 UTC. Organizations chosen for GSoC 2016 will be announced via the program site on February 29.

Please visit our new program site page for more information on how to apply, a detailed timeline of important deadlines and general program information. We also encourage you to check out the Mentor Manual or join the discussion group. Best of luck to all of our mentor organization applicants!
