We accepted 1,115 students from 68 countries. The ten countries with the highest number of accepted students are represented in the pie chart below.
This year we are excited to have students from 6 countries that haven’t previously been represented in Google Summer of Code: Cambodia, Georgia, Guatemala, Kyrgyz Republic, Rwanda and Uruguay.
Students are enrolled in 698 universities from around the globe.
Currently the students are in the community bonding period where they familiarize themselves with their projects, mentors and communities, before beginning the coding period on Monday, May 23rd.
