Reminder: Applications for Google Summer of Code™ 2009 Due Friday

Monday, March 30, 2009

We're entering the home stretch for the student application period for Google Summer of Code 2009!  With 150 Free and Open Source software projects acting as mentoring organizations this year, we have a little bit of something for everyone. Students have until Friday at 19:00 UTC to submit proposals to work on a three month coding project with a mentor from academia or industry.

If you're searching for inspiration or a bit more information while you talk about your ideas with your would-be mentors, you may be interested in the latest installment of the Code Conversations series from the Google Code Blog. We share some past success stories, tips for student applicants and a bit more about Melange, the software that powers the Google Summer of Code 2009 site. 

Ready to apply now? Take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions page and get ready to submit your proposal. As always, helpful and knowledgeable folks are hanging around in #gsoc on Freenode to answer your questions, or you can subscribe to the program discussion list for news and updates. 

Remember, all applications are due by 19:00 UTC this Friday, April 3rd. Best of luck to all our applicants!
