Google Summer of Code: Where are the students?

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Google Summer of Code is truly a global program. For this year’s program we received 5,651 applications from 3,731 students in 97 countries.

We accepted 1,115 students from 68 countries. The ten countries with the highest number of accepted students are represented in the pie chart below.

This year we are excited to have students from 6 countries that haven’t previously been represented in Google Summer of Code: Cambodia, Georgia, Guatemala, Kyrgyz Republic, Rwanda and Uruguay.

Students are enrolled in 595 universities from around the globe.

Currently the students are in the community bonding period where they familiarize themselves with their projects, mentors and communities, before beginning the coding period on Monday, May 23rd.
