We’ve had a great showing from students around the world for Google Summer of Code™ this year. In all, we accepted 1,026 students from 69 countries worldwide. Our top ten countries by number of students accepted this year are: United States (197), India (125), Germany (57), Brazil (50), Poland (46), Canada (40), China (39), United Kingdom (36), France (35), Sri Lanka(34).
145 of the students this year also completed projects as part of Google Summer of Code in 2009.
Meanwhile, since acceptance, all the students have been getting to know their mentors and organizations. Our Community Bonding Period ends on May 24 and coding officially starts the same day. You can find more about the upcoming events in our timeline.
