Getting Started with Google Summer of Code (GSoC)

About the Program

Welcome to Google Summer of Code

Google Summer of Code is a 16 years old program, run every summer, with the intention of bringing more students into open source.

Open source projects apply as mentor organizations and if they are accepted, students send proposals to them to work on a few months' long project. Projects can be planned out by the organizations in advance or can be proposed by students.

Google pays the students, not the organizations they work with. Beginning in 2023, Google is opening the program up to all newcomers of open source that are 18 years and older.

You can read more about the format of the program and its goals here.
