Google Summer of Code with NumFOCUS

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) sponsors students to work full-time for 3 months on open source projects during the summer (in the northern hemisphere), supervised by a senior contributor from the mentoring organization. Google Summer of Code students frequently go on to become active contributors and core maintainers of our projects.

NumFOCUS is excited to once again participate as an umbrella organization for Google Summer of Code 2018 — our fourth time participating!


We look forward to sharing with you soon what our 2018 students will be working on.

In the meantime, you can read about our GSoC 2017 students’ projects on our blog.
