The EFF and the Tor Project have been accepted into Google Summer of Code. This programme offers students a stipend for contributing to open source software over a 3 month period. Google Summer of Code has been running since 2005 and the Tor project has been a participant since 2007.
We are looking for talented and motivated students to work on a number of projects to improve Tor, and related applications. Students are also welcome to come up with their own ideas. Applications must be submitted by 3 April 2009. For further information, and details on how to apply, see the Tor blog.
