Google Summer of Earth Engine is a research program for Indian university students & researchers to get a chance to work with leading research organizations in the country working in environment, conservation, water resources and agricultural domains over 3 months of summer on a project and get paid to do so!
If accepted into the program, you will work on a project using Google Earth Engine under the mentorship of a dedicated mentor at the parent research organization. You will also be given a certificate of recognition for participating in the SoEE program and special Earth Engine swag.
This program is based on the Google Summer of Code model.
The vision behind this program is to provide students with an "impact-filled" engagement over the summer and to give them the exposure of working on real-world research problems dealing with RS/GIS data. We also want to give back to our non-profit partners and support them in their projects by providing them access to some of the brightest student minds in the country along with access to Google Tech & Support and funding for the project in the form of a stipend to the student.
All students accepted into the program will be expected to submit a poster paper at the end of the research term and will be invited to present their work at a Google Summit.
