Calling all students: Google Summer of Code and CSA Trust Grant both happening now!

Deadlines are fast approaching for the following:

Open Chemistry Google Summer of Code: If you're a student and interested in hacking on open source chemistry software (and get paid a bit for the privilege), then get on over to the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) page of the Open Chemistry project. A whole bunch of Open Source chemistry tools have gathered together (including Open Babel, natch) and come up with project ideas that hopefully will spark interest. If you've always wanted to get involved with Open Source but didn't know how, this is a good chance to do so.

CSA Trust Grant: I was a recipient of a CSA Trust Grant myself, and funny story, I'm now a CSA Trustee and on the Grant Committee. Applications are now invited - it's pretty straightforward. If you look at the details of previous recipients you can see the sorts of things they applied for. The success rate is pretty high, so I really do encourage you to apply. And if you don't get it this year, well, try again next year (it worked for me).
