Google Summer of Code is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development. Students work with an open source organization on a 10 week programming project during their break from school.
Spend your summer break writing code and learning about open source development while earning a stipend! Accepted students work with a mentor and become a part of the open source community. Many become lifetime open source developers!
Google Summer of Code is open to students, age 18 and older enrolled in a post secondary academic program in most countries.
198 organizations were accepted to participate in Google Summer of Code 2020! We will announce the 2021 organizations on March 9, 2021! They will bring new, excited developers into their community and the world of open source!
How It Works?
- Apply: Interested students propose a project to work on.
- Code: Accepted students spend the summer coding with guidance from a mentor.
- Share: Submit your code for the world to see!
Open source organizations that would like to participate as a mentor organization in this year’s program can apply. Once accepted, organizations discuss possible ideas with students and then decide on the proposals they wish to mentor for the summer. They provide mentors to help guide each student through the program.
Stipends are paid in two parts, one after each successful evaluation.
- First Evaluation (paid July 19): 45%
- Final Evaluation (paid September 1): 55%
Stipend amounts are calculated based on your location. Your location is determined by where you are currently enrolled in school. If you are enrolled at an online institution, your stipend is determined by your home location. We are using a Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) based calculation to determine the stipend.
Purchasing Power Parity is a way to estimate the exchange rate between two currencies to determine equivalent purchasing power.
We start with a base amount of 3000 USD and then adjust it based on each country’s PPP value. There is a minimum (1500 USD) and maximum (3300 USD) stipend amount. The base amount takes into consideration the fact that many schools are in urban centers which can be more expensive than other parts of the country.
For Indian students stipend is $1500.
