Student Application Template

this proposal is an old one, see GSoC/2012 for a newer one

This is a suggestion for the kind of information we'll find useful from students. Remember - you're going to be committing to several months of work. The more information and planning you can provide up-front, the more we (and Google!) will have to go on when we're ranking your application.

General Notes

Your proposal should be around 1500-4000 words in plain text and should clearly state what you intend to do and the necessary steps to get there. There is a limit on the number of submitted proposals, if you have several ideas, please submit several proposals. Do include URLs pointing to information that would help convince us of your chances of success: preliminary project plans or progress, other projects you've been involved with that were successful, code samples, etc.

It is better if your project is under-scoped and sure to complete; as opposed to a largeish project which may not get done.

See the ideas list for project ideas.

This page is based on application templates for Debian and X.Org.
