At US$5,000 funding per student, this represents an investment of
US$40,000 into Boost by Google this year, for which we are extremely
grateful. Our thanks to everyone in Google who makes this happen
every year.

With so few slots available from Google some very good candidates and
proposals could not be selected, so if you were not selected this
year, better luck next year (remember to come early!).
Congratulations to the students who did make it, and our collective
thanks go to the primary mentors above for taking the time this
summer, as well to the secondary mentors not listed above as well as
everyone who helped out with the proposal review and the ranking and
voting this year.
