Please spread the word -- Google is giving away money to students for writing open source Python code! I'm simply repeating Neal Norwitz' post here.

This spring and summer, Google will again provide stipends for students (18+, undergraduate thru PhD programs) to write new open-source code.

The Python Software Foundation (PSF)

will again act as a sponsoring organization in Google's Summer of Code, matching mentors and projects benefiting Python and Python users. Projects can include work on the core Python language, programmer utilities, libraries, packages, frameworks related to Python, or other Python implementations like Jython, PyPy, or IronPython. Please add your project ideas to the existing set at

Mentoring instructions are also on this page. The deadline is soon, so please sign up as a mentor early. If you are a student considering a project, you should start deciding now. Feel free to ask questions on

The main page for the Summer of Code is

At the bottom are links to StudentFAQ, MentorFAQ, and TermsOfService. The first two have the timeline. Note that student applications are due between May 1, 17:00 PST and May 8, 17:00 PST.

People interested in mentoring a student though PSF are encouraged to contact Neal Norwitz at People unknown to Guido or Neil should find a couple of people known within the Python community who are willing to act as references.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting many new mentors and students. Let's improve Python!
