Google Summer of Code ( is Google's summer program for university students to learn about, and get involved in open source. It's happening again for the 16th year in 2020! Over 15,960 students from 109 countries have participated.

Google Summer of Code is a unique program where students are paired with a mentor to introduce them to the open source community and provide guidance while they work on a real world open source project during their summer break from university. Projects cover a wide range of fields including: Cloud, Operating Systems, Graphics, Medicine, Programming Languages, Robotics, Science, Security and many more. This is not an internship but still provides an invaluable experience and looks great on a resume!

The application period opens on March 16, 2020 and ends on March 31, 2020. It's a highly competitive program (and this year is expected to be even bigger than last year), so don't wait to the last minute to prepare!
