Google Summer of Code 2020: Online Competition

Apply for Google Summer of Code 2020 Online Competition

Google Summer of Code is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development. Students work with an open-source organization on a 3-month programming project during their break from school.

The deadline is on 31 March 2020.


Accepted students work with a mentor and become a part of the open source community. The first step is to browse the list of organizations and look for project ideas that appeal to you. Next, reach out to the organization to introduce yourself and determine if their skills and interests are a good fit. Since spots are limited, it is recommended to write a strong proposal and submit a draft early so they can communicate with the organization and get their feedback to increase the odds of being selected. The participants will receive stipends based on the successful completion of their project milestones.

Main criteria

Participants are required to meet the following eligibility requirements.

  • must be at least 18 years of age when you register
  • must currently be a full or part-time student (or have been accepted and committed to the fall term) at an accredited university as of the date accepted student proposals are announced
  • must be eligible to work in the country you will reside in during the program
  • have not already been accepted as a Student in GSoC more than once
