Mentoring Organizations for Google Summer of Code 2015

Monday, March 2, 2015

We are excited to announce the mentoring organizations that have been accepted for this year’s Google Summer of Code program. As always, we had many more great projects than we could accept. After reviewing 416 applications, we have chosen 137 open source projects, 37 of which are new to Google Summer of Code. You can visit our Google Summer of Code 2015 program website for a complete list of the accepted orgs.

Over the next two weeks, students interested in applying for the Google Summer of Code 2015 program can learn more about the 137 accepted open source projects. The student application period begins on Monday, March 16, 2015 at 19:00 UTC.

Interested? Start by reviewing the Ideas Page from each organization to learn about the project and how you might contribute. Some of the most successful proposals have been completely new ideas submitted by students, so if you don’t see a project on an Ideas Page that appeals to you, don’t be afraid to suggest a new idea to the organization! There are points of contact listed for each organization on their Ideas Page - students can contact the organization directly to discuss a new proposal. All organizations list their preferred method of communication on the organization homepage, available on the Google Summer of Code program website. We strongly encourage students to reach out to the organizations before they apply. Please see our Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.

Congratulations to all of our mentoring organizations! We look forward to working with all of you during this next Google Summer of Code!
