Redox OS and the [Microkernel devroom](http://gsoc.microkernel.info/) did not get
accepted into [GSoC 2018](https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/) this year. We are
planning to fund a couple students under similar rules. If you would like
to sign up as a RSoC student with Redox OS, please send an email to
[info@redox-os.org](mailto:info@redox-os.org). The following is a list of
project ideas. This list is meant to provide suggestions, as students can
propose working on a project not included below.
Redox OS is running its own Summer of Code this year, after the [Microkernel devroom](http://gsoc.microkernel.info/)
did not get accepted into [GSoC 2018](https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/). We
are looking for both [Students](#students) and [Sponsors](#sponsors) who want to
help Redox OS grow.

## Becoming a RSoC Sponsor
At the moment, Redox OS has $10,800 in donations from various platforms to use
to fund students. This will give us three students working for three months, if
each student requests $1200 per month on average as described in [Payment](#payment).
In order to fund more students, we are looking for sponsors who are willing to
fund RSoC. Donations can be made on the [Donate](https://www.redox-os.org/donate/)
page. All donations will be used to fund Redox OS activities, with about 90% of
those over the past year currently allocated to RSoC.

## Becoming a RSoC Student
If you would like to sign up as a RSoC student with Redox OS, please send an
email to [info@redox-os.org](mailto:info@redox-os.org) with the following
information:
- Your name, or whatever you would like to be referred to
- Your location, ideally identifying which time zone you are in
- Your programming background, with links to source code if available
- Your project idea, please see [Projects](#projects) for examples.
- Your estimated start and end date, ideally from June 1st to August 31st.
- Your desired payment, see [Payment](#payment) for more information.
RSoC provides more freedom than the GSoC program. Any person can participate, on
a schedule of their choosing, for the payment of their choosing.

## Payment
Students are free to request any amount, to be paid monthly. A good guideline is
to use this [cost of living index](https://www.expatistan.com/cost-of-living/index)
times $12 per month.
For example, if the index is 100, such as in Prague, the student would be
expected to request $1200 per month, or a total of $3600 for three months.
This matches with the [GSoC stipends](https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/help/student-stipends),
but provides more accuracy than on a per-country measurement.
