Mono in Google’s Summer of Code


Mono has been selected as a mentoring organization for this year’s Google Summer of Code. Since 2005, Google has been sponsoring this annual event for students. In exchange for working on an open source project, each student accepted into the program is paid a stipend of 5,000 USD, 500 of which is given in advance.

Mentoring organizations such as Mono are charged with guiding the students and evaluating their work. A mid-term and a final evaluation are required, with each evaluation worth 2,250 USD to the student. The project the student is to work on must be agreed to in advance by Google and the mentoring organization.

The deadline for students to submit their project proposals is Friday, April 8th. They are expected to have already completed any necessary research be prepared to start writing code. All code produced under this program must be offered via an open source license. Some mentoring agencies may also require the student to sign over the copyrights on the code, as is customary in many open source projects.
