UPDATE: 2010 Google Summer of Code Students Announced
Seven students have been accepted for Mifos projects this year. Join us in wishing them the best of luck this upcoming summer.
Visit the Google Summer of Code Website to see a listing and map of our accepted students and where they’ll be contributing from. Click here to see the full list of more than 600 accepted students participating in this year’s Summer of Code.
We had an overwhelming number of extremely qualified applicants with stellar proposals so it was a very selective process this year. To all those who applied and weren’t selected, we encourage you to apply again in the future and welcome your contributions to our community if there’s a volunteer project or other way you’d like to get involved. We’re always in need of others to help us build technology to fight poverty!

What is Google Summer of Code?
Students all over the world seek something interesting to do during summer. This summer, some student hackers will participate in the Google Summer of Code. They’ll be paid by Google to do something great: contribute to FLOSS: Free and Open Source Software. Mifos is one of the organizations participating in the program. Students that choose Mifos will not only be writing FLOSS, they’ll be helping to end world poverty!
