OSGeo is accepted as a mentor organization for GSoC 2017!

Jorge Sanz (OSGeo)
Dear OSGeo community,

We are proud to announce that OSGeo has been selected as a mentor
organization for the 2017 edition of GSoC! See all selected orgs here
[1].

From now *until March 20*, potential student participants are invited
to discuss application ideas with mentoring organizations/OSGeo’s
projects (see the detailed timeline [2]).

Mentors are invited to let us know the project they intend to mentor,
and to subscribe to the Google webpage [3]. *Before committing for
mentorship, please read and accept the mentor’s responsibilities *
[4].

Once we have verified the correspondence between the mentors and the
idea, we will proceed to appointing them in our wiki page at [5] and
connect the mentors to the OSGeo organization on the Google website,
from which it’ll be possible for the mentors to evaluate the
proposals. Mentors: please offer guidance to the students that contact
your software communities, and offer them a code challenge in line
with the project that they want to apply for.

Would-be students: please read carefully the recommendations at: [6]
and browse the ideas page at [7]

*All: please subscribe the soc mailing list *[8].

Let’s begin!!

Cheers,
The OSGeo GSoC Team
