The Summer of Haskell is an effort by Haskell.Org to reach out to students and encourage them to contribute to the Haskell community with the aid of experienced mentors. This program is open to all college students and newcomers to open-source Haskell contributions, age 18 years or older, in most countries.
Summer of Haskell 2023🔗
We are pleased to announce that Haskell.Org in collaboration with the Haskell Foundation will be hosting the Summer of Haskell 2023! This program will be occurring independently from Google Summer of Code but offers the same opportunities, including mentorship and a stipend, to would-be Haskell contributors.
We will begin accepting proposals from prospective contributors starting April
3rd, and the deadline for submissions is April 20th. If you would like to apply,
please send an email to
summer [AT] haskell.org with a Google doc containing
your proposal. Tips for writing a good proposal can be found
here. We have a curated list of project ideas
that you can select from, or you may also propose an idea of your own if
Our guidelines around contributor eligibility as well as the stipend will mirror those of Google Summer of Code. See here for eligibility guidelines, and here for stipend information. Please be sure to review the eligibility guidelines before you start working on a proposal.
