We have a good momentum in GSOC with 18 slots last year. Ideally we'd like to keep a rather high number of slots even if this means reducing reimbursment per student. The proposal is actually based on an improvement of the GSOC model we've been running for the past 3 years so from my perspective it's rather safe. Of course I understand your concern, but given the interest from the community and project leaders, we'd like to have as many slots as possible.<div><br></div><div>Kostas</div><div><br><br>On Monday, April 20, 2015, Tobias <<a href="mailto:tobias.gondrom@owasp.org">tobias.gondrom@owasp.org</a>> wrote:<br><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="margin:0 0 0 .8ex;border-left:1px #ccc solid;padding-left:1ex">

                            Following recent conversations I would like
                            to formally submit a proposal for the OWASP
                            Summer of Code Sprint, requesting a budget
                            of $30,000.<br>
                            <br>
                          </div>
                          <div>The details of the proposal can be found
                            here: <a href="https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FTC-zh__i6ft6uyZRw4rZHxOA44U6T7i33r8RkN0AXk/edit?usp=sharing" target="_blank">https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FTC-zh__i6ft6uyZRw4rZHxOA44U6T7i33r8RkN0AXk/edit?usp=sharing</a><br>
                          </div>
                          <div><br>
                          </div>
                          I believe that such initiatives are important
                          for our mission as they combine project
                          contributions and reaching out to students who
                          are future developers.<br>
                          <br>
                        </div>
                        Looking forward to your comments,<br>
