Dear All,

This is a gentle reminder that *student application period opens today*

If you are a *student*, you can now start drafting your application in
melange. Do contact the developers of your chosen software, to make sure
you will have strong mentor support! Be sure you have read the
recommendations for students [2]

If you are a *mentor*, please create your profile in melange, then
connect with your organization (OSGeo) *indicating in the message for
the admins your project and the name of the idea(s) you are mentoring,
together with an email address that you wish to use with communication
with the mentoring organization*. Such data will be kept private and
only handled by GSoC admins. A plus is a link to a mail on public
mailing lists, that show that communication with the prospective student
has started. Before applying as a mentor, however, we encourage you to
familiarize yourself with the guide for mentors [3].

The *deadline* to students applications is *27th March*. [1]
Mentor registration will remain open until student acceptance.

Please forward this email to all relevant mailing lists of your knowledge.

Looking forward to see the first applications in Melange!
As usual, contact soc mailing list with your general questions about
application with OSGeo.

Your OSGeo GSoC admins,
Madi and Anne
