In case you didn't see it on Facebook, there is a great opportunity for
students to get paid for  contributing to astronomy open-source projects
this summer.  Please read the original announcement from Nathan Goldbaum:

OpenAstronomy has been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google
Summer of Code (GSOC) 2016. Students applying with OpenAstronomy this
summer will be able to work on projects that will improve Astropy, SunPy,
yt, ChiantiPy, or Julia Astro. GSOC is a great opportunity for students to
get real-world experience in active open source software projects. This
will lead to real improvements in software that will be visible to
thousands of scientists who make use of the OpenAstronomy projects every

Please forward this announcement to students at any level who might be
interested in getting paid to improve open source software this summer.
Students have until March 25th to put in their applications. I'm also happy
to answer questions about this on facebook or via e-mail (
ngoldbau at illinois.edu).
