The Python Software Foundation (PSF) is looking for GSoC students to work on a variety of Python-related projects as well as Python itself. The PSF acts as an "umbrella organization" under which many smaller sub-organizations can participate in Google Summer of Code. SummerOfCode will have the current list of accepted projects.

Before submitting an application,

For the most part, you want to contact mentors via their project mailing lists, which are listed on SummerOfCode or talk to them via IRC.

Your goal is to develop your GSoC application in concert with one or more possible mentors, taking their feedback to heart and revising your application accordingly. Applications with no willing mentors will generally not be considered, and mentor opinions are taken very seriously in the review process, so you want to impress them.

While prior open source work isn't absolutely required, it helps enormously. Even if you haven't worked on anything before this, please engage with the project you're proposing to work on and submitting some kind of patch (minor code patch, documentation patch, etc.) showing that you can work through the technical issues necessary to contribute. Applicants that do this will be prioritized over those that don't.

Your application should discuss, in some detail, the following points:

Please also include the URL of your blog in your application. If you don't have one, you will need to get one; weekly blog posts are a requirement for participation.

Finally, we need to know how to contact you! Include both an e-mail address and a phone number in your application.
