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 $5,500 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/gsoc2014/freebsd and a
list of possible project ideas may be found at 
https://wiki.freebsd.org/SummerOfCode2014 .  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 participants themselves.  More
details about FreeBSD's participation in Google Summer of Code including
contact details can be found at http://gsoc.freebsd.org/

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.

Please also help us advertise Google Summer of Code and FreeBSD at your
local university or college campus!  A poster is available at

The application deadline is March 21st 19:00 UTC.
