Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is an effort by Google, Inc. to promote Open Source Software and education by bringing students together with experienced developers as their mentors for the summer (northern hemisphere). Google pays the student a stipend, the student learns by participating in real software development, the project gets code and maybe a new developer who'll stay around and benefit the project into the future.

It is generally agreed in the FlightGear development community that the project is an excellent candidate for acceptance as a GSoC mentoring organization and could see long term benefits if accepted. To be accepted, a plan must be developed. At the moment there is no active initiative to participate in GSoC.

NOTE: Please try and use the "GSoC:" namespace/prefix
