It is that time of the year again when we start gathering ideas and mentors for Google Summer Code .
Google Summer of Code 2022 will bring some changes. Our main highlights are:
- Expanded eligibility: The program will no longer be solely focused on university students or recent graduates.
- Multiple Sizes of Projects: medium sized projects (~175 hours) and large projects (~350 hours)
- Read Expanding Google Summer of Code in 2022 | Google Open Source Blog for more info.
Please, submit your project ideas as issues in our gitlab repository by March 1st. Make sure you answer all the questions in the issue template (Project-Proposal template).
The GNOME Foundation recognizes that mentoring is a time consuming effort, and for this reason, we will be giving accepted mentors an option to receive the $500 USD stipend that Google pays the organization for each contributor. Mentors can choose to revert the fund into a donation to the GNOME Foundation. Some payment restrictions may apply (please contact us for questions).
Proposals will be reviewed by the GNOME GSoC Admins and posted in our Project Ideas page.
If you have any doubts, please don’t hesitate to contact the GNOME GSoC Admins on this very same forum or on Matrix in the channel #soc:gnome.org
