<h1>Debian welcomes student applications for Google Summer of Code 2011</h1>

<p><em>Debian</em> is now welcoming students to apply for <em>Google
Summer of Code 2011</em> with <em>Debian</em>. This will be the sixth
consecutive participation of <em>Debian</em> and as each year, the
developer community looks forward to introduce students to the world
of <em>Debian</em> and Free Software.</p>

<p><em>Summer of Code</em> projects from the past years have provided
valuable contributions to <em>Debian</em>. They have been
opportunities for students to propose innovative new ideas to
<em>Debian</em> as well as for developers to collaborate with students
on code critical to <em>Debian</em>. Many successful students have
gone on to become <em>Debian</em>project members.</p>

<p>The range of project themes proposed to students is one of the
widest among all participating organizations, encompassing subjects
such as porting the <em>Debian</em> system to new architectures,
improving tools for package management, extending the developer
infrastructure and better integration with other well-known open
source projects.</p>

<p>Further information about applying for <em>Google Summer of
Code</em> at <em>Debian</em> can be found at: <a

<p><em>Google Summer of Code</em> (<a
is a global program where university students are given a stipend to
write code for open source projects over a three month period. Through
<em>Google Summer of Code</em>, accepted students are paired with a
mentor from the participating projects, gaining exposure to real-world
software development and the opportunity for employment in areas
related to their academic pursuits. Best of all, more source code is
created and released for the use and benefit of all.</p>
