The OWASP Foundation will be applying as a Mentor Organization for Google
Summer of Code 2018 <https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/>
 (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.
We need your help in a making this program a success and the more mentors
the more slots for OWASP!

   - Students will start applying for projects on March 12, 2018 but many
   are already exploring ideas on our wiki page.
