When can I apply for Google Summer of Code?

We'll begin accepting proposals from open source mentoring organizations on 3 February, 2014 at 19:00 UTC; we'll stop accepting organization proposals on 14 February, 2014 at 19:00 UTC. The student proposal period begins 10 March, 2014 at 19:00 UTC and ends 21 March, 2014 at 19:00 UTC. For full details, see the program timeline.

How does the program work?

Here are the steps:

  1. Open source projects who'd like to participate in GSoC 2014 should choose at least two organization administrators to represent them.
  2. ORG administrators will submit the mentoring ORG’s proposal for participation online.
  3. Google will notify the ORG administrators of acceptance, and an account for the accepted ORG will be created on the GSoC 2014 site.
  4. Students submit project proposals online to work with particular mentoring ORGs.
  5. Mentoring ORGs rank student proposals and perform any other due diligence on their potential students; student proposals are matched with a mentor.
  6. Google allocates a particular number of student slots to each organization.
  7. Mentoring ORGs make their final decision on which students to accept into the program.
  8. Students are notified of acceptance.
  9. Students begin learning more about their mentoring ORG and its community before coding work starts.
  10. Students begin coding work at the official start of the program, provided they've interacted well with their community up until the program start date.
  11. Mentors and students provide mid-term progress evaluations.
  12. Mentors provide a final evaluation of student progress at close of program; students submit a final review of their mentor and the program.
  13. Students upload completed code to GSoC site.
