From the OhioLINK announcement:

Are you a coder? Then check out Google's Summer of Code, a program designed to inspire young developers and provide students in computer science and related fields the opportunity to do work related to their academic pursuits during the summer, and to support existing open source projects and organizations. OhioLINK is pleased to participate in the Summer of Code program again this year as a mentoring organization.

If your application for the Summer of Code is accepted, you will receive a $4500 award ($500 to get started and $4000 once the project is completed). In addition, the mentoring organization will receive $500 for each student developer that completes a project.

OhioLINK has a page on the Digital Resource Commons development site which describes our participation and projects; take a look, augment or add your own (feel free to read the project documentation through the Wiki link above and suggest other ideas), and apply to participate beginning May 1st. Questions about the program? Take a look at Google's participant FAQ.
