Google Summer of Code with NumFOCUS

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) sponsors students to work full-time for 3 months on open source projects during the summer (in the northern hemisphere), supervised by a senior contributor from the mentoring organization. Google Summer of Code students frequently go on to become active contributors and core maintainers of our projects.

NumFOCUS was a participating organization for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2021 — our 7th time joining this remarkable initiative!


During the 2021 GSoC session, 23 NumFOCUS open source projects mentored 45 students! Please read our blog post highlighting some of the participating students’ takeaways and highlights of the work achieved during this summer session.
