Hi all,

A reminder: The deadline for applications is 19:00 UTC Friday March 21st 
(i.e. tomorrow, approximately 28 hours time).

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/org2/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.

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

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