Hi all,

FreeBSD is pleased to announce that once again we have been selected to 
participate in the Google Summer of Code program.  This gives University 
students the opportunity to earn a $5000 USD stipend in exchange for 
working on Open Source software over their Summer break.  Students have 
around 12 weeks to work on their project, and will be mentored by existing 
FreeBSD committers.  Participating organisations will earn $500 USD per 
student mentored.

FreeBSD's organisation page may be found at 
http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/org/google/gsoc2013/freebsd and a list 
of possible project ideas may be found at 
https://wiki.freebsd.org/IdeasPage .  Please note that projects do not 
have to come from the ideas list, and indeed students are encouraged to 
produce their own project ideas - the majority of past projects have been 
thought up by the particpants themselves.

Students are also encouraged to visit http://www.google-melange.com/ to 
view more details of the program, including eligibility requirements, and 
a list of other participating organisations.
