GitHub has been selected to participate as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code, a program where students receive a stipend to contribute to open source projects.

If you want to work with a GitHubber on an open source project, check out our list of project ideas, featuring opportunities to contribute to the Atom Editor and the Homebrew package manager for OS X. If you have an idea for a project that we haven’t suggested yet, browse GitHub’s open source projects and open a new issue on the github/gsoc repository to suggest other ideas or ask questions about participating in the program.

Applications can be submitted to the Google Summer of Code website between March 16 and March 27.
