Student Application Template

Adapted from

To fill this in, copy the source text, don't rename the template

This is a suggestion for the kind of information we'll find useful from students. Remember - you're going to be committing to several months' work. The more information and planning you can provide up-front, the more we (and Google!) will have to go on when we're ranking your application.

* Name
* Contact/Email: where can we contact you? (IRC/IM details too, if available. We will also privately request your phone contact at some point.)
* Background: something about yourself: technical skills, experience, etc. Who are you? What makes you the best person to work on this project?
* Project title
* Synopsis: a short description.
* Deliverables: quantifiable results e.g. 'Python Plugin for LibreCAD', 'Write 3 articles for X website'. 
* Project details: a more detailed description.
* Project schedule: how long will the project take? When can you begin work?
* Other summer plans: are you getting married? Do you have a long vacation planned? Are you expecting to start a job?
  Be aware that if you are accepted for the summer, then Google will be paying you as though you were working for them. We (in LibreCAD) will
  therefore expect you to be working 35-40 hours per week on your project. It is very unlikely that you will be able to combine a successful
  SoC with another summer job working for somebody else.
* Exams and other commitments: do you have university exams inside the SoC period? If so, that's most likely not a problem but please tell us early!
* Do you have plans to continue working with LibreCAD after the summer ?
