During the [http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/homepage/google/gsoc2014 Google Summer of Code] google will pay students to participate in open source projects - see the link for additional details. Your work will be released under an open source license, in case of STK that will be GPL 3.0. Make especially sure that you fulfill [http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/document/show/gsoc_program/google/gsoc2014/help_page#1._Are_there_any_age_restrictions_on GSoC's eligibility criteria].

Carol Smith, the Google's GSoC Program Manager, has a short [https://plus.google.com/102168248469649733567/posts/R1F9W2S4WmP video] where she described the application process for students.
After a very successful GSoC 2013 we will try to participate again, i.e. become a mentoring organisation. That means (if we get accepted) that students can work on SuperTuxKart and receive money for it. They will be mentored by one of our experienced developers, and get some good work experience to start their career. Note that while SuperTuxKart is a game appealing to younger audiences, the code base is rather complicated, and our suggested tasks will certainly challenge students.
