Tor in Google Summer of Code 2016
Here's the facts: GSoC gives you the opportunity to work on your own Tor-related coding project with one of the Tor developers as your mentor. Your mentor will help you when you're stuck and guide you in becoming part of the Tor community. Google pays you 5,500 USD for the three months of your project, so that you can focus on coding and don't have to worry about how to pay your bills.
Did we catch your attention? These are your next steps: Go look at the Google Summer of Code FAQ to make sure you are eligible to participate. Have a look at our ideas list to see if one of those projects matches your interests. If there is no project on that list that you'd want to work on, read the documentation on our website and make up your own! Come to the tor-dev@ list or #tor-dev on OFTC and let us know about your project idea. Communication is essential to success in the summer of code, and we're unlikely to accept students we haven't heard from before reading their application. So really, come to the list or IRC channel and talk to us!
We are looking forward to discussing your project idea with you!
Search Engine preference wasn't mentioned once here. Google is offering to fund work on Tor. This is great
This is about coding. Startpage.com is useing Google btw
Startpage uses Google. I don't care anyway, I use Google because it provides the best seach results which is why I use a search engine; to get what I'm looking for. I use Tor and I block ads and scripts, I don't see a problem with using Google.
