We want to spread the word about a paid internship summer program sponsored by Google, called “Google Summer of Code”. It’s actually *not* an internship at Google, but there are several companies who propose to have student interns for a 3-month programming project in many different disciplines. Students can browse the list, decide which projects they might be interested to join, submit a proposal, and if accepted they are paired with a mentor and program away for 3 months from May 30th to August 21st.
The deadline for student proposals is April 4.
