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
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.
