This year OWASP has been selected as an official Google Summer of
Code ("GSoC") mentoring organization!

Open source software is changing the world and creating the future. 
Want to help shaping it?  We're looking for students to join us in
making 2014 the best Summer of Code yet!

All students currently enrolled in an accredited institution are
welcome to participate in the Google Summer of Code 2014 program
along with the OWASP Foundation.

What is GSoC?

The Google Summer of Code program ("GSoC") is designed to encourage
student participation in open source developent.  Throught GSoC,
accepted student applicants will be paired with OWASP mentors from
participating organizations.

Benefits to students include:  Gaining exposure to real-world
software development scenarios, An opportunity for employment in
areas related to their academic pursuits, and Google will be offering
successful student contributors a $5,000 USD stipend, enabling them
to focus on their coding projects for three months.  This program is
done completely online.  Students and mentors from more than 100
countries have participated in past years.

commitment to produce code for the selected OWASP Project during
three months.  You will also take some resources from OWASP project
leaders, who will dedicate a portion of their time to mentor you. 
Therefore, we'd like to have candidates who are committed to helping
the OWASP mission.  You don't have to be a proven developer - in
fact, this whole program is meant to facilitate joining OWASP and
other Open Source communities.  However, experience in coding and
applications are welcome.
