Google Summer of Code 2024: Call for project ideas and mentors

Many of you may already be familiar with Google Summer of Code: It’s a program that offers students and new open source developers stipends to write code for various open source software projects. @SimonPoole, @lonvia and myself are currently applying on behalf of OSM to participate as a mentoring organization.

At this point in time we a looking for project ideas and mentors from OpenStreetMap’s open source software ecosystem. If you have suitable projects and/or are willing to mentor a contributor, please add to the 2024 Project ideas wiki page.

If you are unsure about how to proceed with suggesting a project or mentoring, please feel free to ask us at

Because we’re already seeing some interest from potential GSoC contributors: Contributor applications won’t open before we have been accepted as a mentor organisation. If we’re accepted, you’ll be able to either pick a project from the ideas list or submit a project that isn’t on the list. In the latter case, though, you should be prepared to contact the organisation group early in the process and potentially arrange for mentors yourself.
