Google - Summer of Code

Google's "Summer of Code" program, designed to introduce students to the world of open source software development.
Google has chosen 410 projects (out of over 8000 proposed) for sponsorship. Over 100 appear to be related to Open Source desktop software.
The results include 24 from KDE, 12 from GNOME, 15 from GAIM, 10 each from OpenOffice and Mozilla, and many more. Specific projects haven't been announced yet, but Greg Stein from Google announced the breakdown to the "summer-discuss" Google Group on a per-project basis.

Further details on Google's "Summer of Code" program are available here (PDF download).

More Updates to come Shortly.
