The Jane Street Summer Project is aimed at encouraging growth in the functional programming community by funding students over the summer to work on open-source projects in various functional programming languages (with a focus on our favorite language, OCaml). We do that by funding students and faculty to work together over the summer to create software that makes it easier for people who are using functional languages as an ends rather than a means.
The JSSP is funded by [Jane Street Capital](http://janestreet.com). We make extensive use of [OCaml at Jane Street](http://ocaml.janestreet.com), and it’s in our interest to see the FP community thrive. Plus, we think it will be fun.
