Thanks for reaching out to us - our sponsorship application deadline is
quickly approaching (15 May), so please have those students register for
DebConf14 at: https://summit.debconf.org before that deadline so we can fold
them into our sponsorship awards. Please have them indicate in the requests
for sponsorship questions that they are GSOC students and that Google is
already sponsoring travel.

Our bursaries team will have decisions made by the end of the month, but
step 1 is to get all the students registered in time so they are eligible
for sponsorship consideration.

Thank you so much!
