8. 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.

7. How does the program work?

Here are the steps:

  • Open source projects who'd like to participate in Google Summer of Code in 2014 should choose at least two organization administrators to represent them.
  • Organization administrators will submit the mentoring organization’s proposal for participation online.
  • Google will notify the organization administrators of acceptance, and an account for the accepted organizations will be created on the Google Summer of Code 2014 site.
  • Students submit project proposals online to work with particular mentoring organizations.
  • Mentoring organizations rank student proposals and perform any other due diligence on their potential students; student proposals are matched with a mentor.
  • Google allocates a particular number of student slots to each organization.
  • Mentoring organizations make their final decision on which students to accept into the program.
  • Students are notified of acceptance.
  • Students begin learning more about their mentoring organization and its community before coding work starts.
  • 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.
  • Mentors and students provide mid-term progress evaluations.
  • Mentors provide a final evaluation of student progress at close of program; students submit a final review of their mentor and the program.
  • Students upload completed code to Google Summer of Code site.
