Outreachy Metrics Catalytic Grants The OSC Catalytic Grants program is designed to jump-start areas of work in Free & Open Source Software projects that are often neglected. These grants combine funding and in-kind support from OSC resources. Google Code-in Google Code-in is a global, online contest introducing pre-university students ages 13 to 17 to the world of open source development. With a wide variety of bite-sized tasks, it’s easy for beginners to jump in and get started no matter what skills they have. Mentors from the DIAL Open Source Center’s participating organizations lend a helping hand as participants learn what it’s like to work on an open source project. Participants get to work on real software and win prizes from t-shirts to a trip to Google HQ! Strategic Grants Summer of Code Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program that offers university students an opportunity to be paid for contributing to an open source project over a three month period. OSC has been an “umbrella organization” to our member projects, helping them increase their maturity & reach, raise awareness among student applicants, and connect students to meaningful open source work that makes the world a better place.
