Google Summer of Code with R R-Bloggers, March 26, 2012, By Tal Galili.

Google has again accepted R as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code. R has successfully participated in GSoC in multiple previous years, and is excited to be returning this year as a mentoring organization.

In a nutshell: If you are a student looking to write some code for the R community, Google is willing to pay you $5000 for 3 months during this summer of 2012. A good starting point is the R GSoC wiki. Interested students or mentors are encouraged to discuss other project ideas on the gsoc-r Google group.

Note that GSoC is about coding. It is not intended to fund research; but many activities with R require code to advance our work, so the program can be very helpful to improving R.

The application process opened today (March 26th), and successful applicants typically post a draft application for feedback as soon as possible after the application period opens. After the close of the application process, R project mentors will discuss and rank applications, and then request funding from Google for the best applicants and projects.
