We are very pleased to announce that nine Haskell projects have been
selected to receive funding to the value of $45k under Google's 2006
Summer of Code program. A wide range of projects will be worked on,
contributing to the community important tools and libraries. The
students have until August 21 to complete their projects, and receive
their grants.

The Haskell.org team of mentors would like to thank Google for
recognizing the importance of supporting the Haskell language and

This year was extremely competitive, with over 110 Haskell project
