Crystal Space is accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code. That basically means that we will accept students to work on some part of Crystal Space and Google will pay these students. We put up a page with some ideas on possible projects here. A very important link for students is the Google Summer of Code FAQ. You can see there that the deadline for student applications is 24 March! So don't hesitate. If you have some idea that is not on our list already then please talk to us about it first to increase your chance of being accepted.
