Google Summer of Code '08

Google has announced its summer of code '08 event.
From the FAQ:
The Google Summer of Code is a program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source projects.


In order to participate in the program, you must be a student. Google defines a student as an individual enrolled in or accepted into an accredited institution including (but not necessarily limited to) colleges, universities, masters programs, PhD programs and undergraduate programs. You should be prepared, upon request, to provide Google with transcripts or other documentation from your accredited institution as proof of enrollment or admission status. Computer Science does not need to be your field of study in order to participate in the program.

Thanks for the link! I am definitely going to tell my CS friends about this! I think it's really cool that google does this. The more support for open source projects the better!
