Interested in coding on Tor and getting paid for it by Google? If you
are a student, we have good news for you: we have been accepted as a
mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2017!


Here's the facts: GSoC gives you the opportunity to work on your own
Tor-related coding project with one of the Tor developers as your
mentor. Your mentor will help you when you're stuck and guide you in
becoming part of the Tor community. Google pays you for the
three months of your project, so that you can focus on coding and
don't have to worry about how to pay your bills.


Did we catch your attention? These are your next steps: Go look at
the Google Summer of Code FAQ [1] to make sure you are eligible to
participate. Have a look at our ideas list [2] to see if one of those
projects matches your interests. If there is no project on that list
that you'd want to work on, read the documentation on our website [3]
and make up your own! Come to #tor-dev on OFTC [4] or let us know about
your project idea here. Communication is essential to success in the
summer of code, and we're unlikely to accept students we haven't heard
from before reading their application. So really, speak up on this list
or come to our IRC channel and talk to us!

Finally, write down your project idea using our template [5] and submit
your application to Google before March 25th [6].

We are looking forward to discussing your project idea with you!
