The R Project has once again been selected as a mentoring organization for this year’s Google Summer of Code (GSoC).  If you’re not familiar with GSoC, it’s a global program that offers students a stipend to write code for open source projects, under the direction of a mentor.  Mentors get code written for their project, but no money.  Students get something like a paid summer internship, with open-source contributions they can reference on their resume.

If you’re interested in participating as a student or a mentor, there’s an overview of the GSoC program on The R Project GSoC 2015 Wiki.  The wiki also includes a timeline and links to prior year’s projects.

Several mentors from various backgrounds have already proposed projects for students to work on this summer.  Mentors have until March 9th to submit projects they would be willing to support, and student applications begin on March 16th.
