Hi all,

A reminder: The deadline for applications is 19:00 UTC Friday May 3rd

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.  Over the past eight years we have hosted over
150 successful projects, and look forward to continuing this trend.

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.  We are encouraging
discussion of projects on the freebsd-hackers mailing list and the
#freebsd-soc IRC channel on EFNet.

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.

If you have administrative questions you can contact the FreeBSD GSoC
administration team at soc-admins at FreeBSD.org.
