TLDR; Wikimedia will soon be applying as a mentoring organization to Google Summer of Code 2022 <https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com
>  and Outreachy Round 24 <https://www.outreachy.org/
> . We are currently working on a list of interesting project ideas to include in the application. If you have some ideas for coding or non-coding (design, documentation, translation, outreach, research) projects, share them here: <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T299453
As a mentor, you will engage potential candidates in the application period for both programs between March and April. You will help candidates make small contributions to your project and answer any project-related queries during this time. You will work more closely with the accepted candidates during the coding period between May and August.
New changes are coming to GSoC
GSoC has exciting changes this year, including:
* Eligibility criteria redefined–the program is now open to all open-source newcomers 18 years and older. It will no longer be solely focused on university students or recent graduates.
* Multiple sizes of projects supported–ranging from ~175 to ~350 hr long.
* Increased flexibility in project timing–project deadline can be extended to up to 22 weeks.
