The deadline for interested Google Summer of Code contributors to register for GSoC 2023 and submit project proposals is fast approaching! Visit for more information on registration and to explore the 171 mentoring organizations and submit your project proposals. 

The most successful applications come from contributors who start early and do not wait until the last minute to apply. Applications close on Tuesday, April 4th at 18:00 UTC.

Please keep a few helpful tips in mind:

  • Be sure to register now and make sure that you have an account setup so you can then submit a proposal. Contributors will need to register on the GSoC site before applying to projects and submitting their proposals.

  • Read the program rules, FAQ, contributor guide, and advice for applying.

  • Watch our new Intro to GSoC video, and the GSoC Org Highlight videos and Community Talks series, to get inspired about projects that contributors have worked on in the past.

  • Review the list of 171 mentoring organizations and use filters to sort by programming language (python, C++, etc.) and by category (data, development tools, infrastructure and cloud, security, etc.).

    • Remember, the deadline is only a few days away so organizations and mentors may be slow to respond to any questions you have as they are likely already busy communicating with many other potential contributors.

  • Tip for GSoC site - When registering as a contributor for the first time you will need to scroll down on the GSoC homepage and click on the ‘register as a contributor’ button before you will be able to log in through the ‘log in’ button in the upper right corner of the page. 

  • Another tip once you’ve registered - If you receive an error notification, try logging out and logging back in. With the most recent Google Auth API, you have to log in a lot more often. 

Interested contributors may register and submit project proposals on the GSoC site from now until Tuesday, April 4th at 18:00 UTC when the application window closes. Do not wait until the last minute to submit your proposal, there are no deadline extensions.Talking to the orgs is very important if you want to be selected for the GSoC program.
