Google Summer of Code (GSoC) will begin accepting student applications on March 29, 2021. The global, online program is designed to engage students with open source software communities.
GSoC is a highly competitive and unique program - in the past 16 years, it had over 16,000 students from 111 countries accepted into the program. Participants are paired with a mentor to help introduce them to an open-source community and guide them with their project. GSoC gives students invaluable real-world experience and an opportunity to receive a stipend to contribute to open-source software.
Google will announce the 2021 GSoC open-source mentoring organizations on March 9th. At that point, students will want to check out the project ideas and reach out to the organizations that interest them to learn more about the projects.
