Google "A number of you have emailed us with one question on your minds: Will there be a Summer of Code this year? The answer, as you might have guessed, is yes! The SoC is our program to introduce students to the world of Open Source software development. Last year of the 8744 applicants, 419 students were accepted into the program and more than 80% of them succeeded, which means they received the full stipend of $4500. As of today, we're taking in applications from mentoring organizations, so watch that list of mentoring organizations grow!"

I wanted to participate last summer but couldn't (personal reasons) ;)

This summer I hope to join a good project! I think Google's summer of code is a GREAT idea to give kids something to do in the summer lol.
