About Google Summer of Code

Google Summer of Code (g.co/gsoc) is Google's mentorship program for bringing new contributors into open source communities. It's happening again for the 18th year in 2022! Over 18,000 developers from 112 countries have participated.

Google Summer of Code is a unique program where new contributors to open source, ages 18 and over, are paired with a mentor to introduce them to the open source community and provide guidance while they work on a real world open source project over the summer. Projects cover a wide range of fields including: Cloud, Operating Systems, Graphics, Medicine, Programming Languages, Robotics, Science, Security and many more. GSoC Contributors do earn a stipend to work on their medium (~175 hour) or large (~350 hour) projects. This is not an internship but provides an invaluable experience and allows you to be part of an amazing community!

GSoC is a highly competitive program, so don't wait to the last minute to prepare! GSoC Contributors should reach out to the organizations that interest them once orgs are announced on March 7, 2022. Potential GSoC Contributors can apply at g.co/gsoc from April 4 -19, 2022.

Submit proposals to apply as student contributors at SAT

We encourage participation from students from communities under-represented in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) fields. We aim at increasing the participation of groups traditionally underrepresented in software development (including but not limited to: women, LGBTQ+, underrepresented minorities, and people with disabilities).

To submit proposals to apply as student contributors at SAT, please:

We will then work together with you contributors so that you can submit your proposal, first as a merge request to our repository then by applying on https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com as required by the GSoC program.
