Hey college students, want to spend your summer writing Drupal code while getting paid by Google? Sign up to participate in the Summer of Code 2006 program and that's exactly what you could be doing.
As of May 1, Google is now accepting applications from students. You've only got until May 8th to get them in, so you'd better get on it.
Make sure to check out the list of proposed Drupal projects for inspiration. Your personal project ideas are also very welcome, so don't hesitate to deviate from the published list.
The Drupal community is absolutely dedicated to your success, and each student accepted to work on a Drupal project will have two personal mentors to work with. There is also a team of people standing by to answer your questions or help you with your application.
Good luck, and may your summer be filled with great Drupal coding!
