For any students reading Phoronix interested in contributing to open-source projects, it's time to apply for Google's Summer of Code 2015 (GSoC 2015) where you can be financed to work on major free software initiatives over the summer holiday.

There's a lot of interesting projects for GSoC 2015 from the X.Org Foundation to Coreboot to lowRISC to GNOME to Wine and many others. From now until 27 March is the opportunity for students to apply to work on various tasks for each of the 137 selected open-source projects.

Students interested in learning more can visit Google's open-source blog to find out all of the important details. Besides the reward of contributing to upstream open-source projects, GSoC provides funding to students and perhaps most important this annual initiative is a great stepping stone for going on to work for companies like Google, Intel, AMD, and others.
