To be announced!
 
 
==[[Google_Summer_of_Code/2018|GSoC 2018]]==
 
 
Our umbrella selected 9 students that prepared quality proposals for BRL-CAD, FreeCAD, LibreCAD, or/and Slic3r. By the end of GSoC, all but 1 passed successfully.
 
 
==[[Google_Summer_of_Code/2017|GSoC 2017]]==
 
 
Our umbrella accepted 10 students that prepared quality proposals and demonstrated commitment. Students were selected for LibreCAD, Slic3r, BRL-CAD, and FreeCAD.
 
 
==[[Google_Summer_of_Code/2016|GSoC 2016]]==
 
 
This year we tamed it back to 9 students working on projects for BRL-CAD, OpenSCAD, LibreCAD, and FreeCAD (new partner).  We were not going to apply at all, but we also didn't want to lose momentum with our umbrella partners or leave them to fend for themselves.
 
 
==[[Google_Summer_of_Code/2015|GSoC 2015]]==
 
 
This year we had a whopping 12 students accepted to work on projects. As an umbrella organization, we expanded our cooperation to include LinuxCNC.
 
 
==[[Google_Summer_of_Code/2014|GSoC 2014]]==
 
 
Hoping to foster collaboration and communication, we actively reached out to a number of related and active open source CAD communities.  We expanded our umbrella to include cooperation with STEPcode, LibreCAD, and OpenSCAD.
 
 
==[[Google_Summer_of_Code/2013|GSoC 2013]]==
 
 
Middle ground, not too many, not too few.  It was just right.  We accepted seven students that all participated successfully.  This was also our first year participating as an umbrella organization, coordinating one of those slots with the STEPcode community.

This year, we aimed big.  Lots of mentors, lots of students.  Compared to some of the larger notable orgs, students had a really great chance of acceptance if they were actively communicative and highly passionate about their project idea and BRL-CAD.  Overall, we accepted eleven students.
