Google Summer of Code 2018 (GSOC) - Deadline January 21st

Google Summer of Code 2018 (GSOC) - Deadline January 21st 

The OWASP Foundation will be applying as a Mentor Organization for Google Summer of Code 2018 (GSOC)!  GSOC is an international grant program that promotes open source projects by providing a stipend for university students to code for open source projects. During the Google Summer of Code your project can choose a student to mentor from a wide range of applicants. The student will complete a project defined by an OWASP Project leader aimed at improving an OWASP Project.  Each student will be assigned a volunteer mentor (who does not need to be an OWASP Project Leader) to help guide and evaluate the student throughout the process.  

We need your help in a making this program a success and the more mentors the more slots for OWASP!

GSOC for Project Leaders:
  • Add your idea on our GSOC 2018 Ideas wiki page ASAP; Deadline January 21st! 
  • Students will start applying for projects on March 12, 2018 but many are already exploring ideas on our wiki page.
  • You may submit multiple ideas (but each accepted idea will need its own mentor)
  • Leaders are welcome but not required to also be mentors
Become a Mentor: 
  • Do you want to become a mentor for a student?
  • Choose a participating OWASP Project Idea from the wiki page listed below preferably the one you are most familiar with on the GSOC 2018 Ideas page
  • If you have an idea for mentoring a student that is not listed, reach out the the Project Leader to pitch your idea.
Help OWASP Invite Students: 
  • Are you somehow affiliated with a university? Share this opportunity in the classroom, with instructors, and with the appropriate department secretary. 
  • Invite students who already volunteer with OWASP and Students associated with your chapter.
