Recipients/Award-Winners of the Google Summer of Code 2007 under Sahana

The Google Summer of Code, held annually, is a competition/internship for students. Google selects a quota of students out of the numerous who apply for various projects, and they are then expected to work with the relevant community to complete the project as per requirements and time schedule. At the end of the program, successful students are awarded a (very attractive ;)) package.

Our special thanks goto Google, for their continual support, and for giving this opportunity to both the students and Sahana, where both benefited immensely.

The following students are the proud Google Summer of Code recipients for 2007, under the Sahana project (in alphabetical order):
