In 2005, Google sponsored the first annual Summer of Code event.  This event pairs collegiate students with mentors from open source projects.  The mentor helps the student complete an open source project over the course of the summer, giving the student an opportunity to experience open source development and the community that surrounds it first-hand.  This valuable experience introduces new contributors to open source, results in new and innovative projects, and rewards participants with a little cash for their effort.

Projects developed with the Fedora Project must also be covered by an adequate Free and Open Source license.  These are outlined by the [http://www.opensource.org/ OSI]  and [http://www.fsf.org/ FSF] .  The Fedora Project prefers the GPL for software, but other licenses are also acceptable.  Separate documentation should be placed under the OPL v1.0 without options to be adopted by Fedora Documentation, but can otherwise be placed under any free license, including the GNU FDL.

Needed:
  
Projects must also not be in violation of any law of the United States or of the state of North Carolina.  Software that may infringe upon copyrights or patents is not eligible.  Projects that require or link to non-Free software will also not be considered.

We strongly encourage students to get involved with the Fedora Community.  Throughout the duration of the program, students can access Fedora developers and users through mailing lists and IRC to get help and feedback that their mentor cannot provide.  The Fedora Community is full of talented and friendly individuals that will be happy to help a student.  ["Communicate"]

The FedoraBounties page contains projects that the Fedora community would like to see completed, but which have not yet been undertaken.  These will generally be the best candidates for Summer of Code projects with the Fedora Project.  Each of the Fedora sub-projects will have needs of its own, so [[Communicating and getting help|  communicating]]  with other Fedora Project contributors will likely reveal more great ideas.  The [[Mentors|  Fedora Mentors]]  project, a permanent mentoring initiative of the Fedora Project, may also be able to help students get started.

Any Fedora contributor with a solid track record within the project is welcome to help mentor a student.  Serving as a mentor is easy, and you won't be left standing alone.  If you're interested, contact PatrickBarnes.
