Glide, please note that Google Summer of Code FAQ says that
GSoC is not considered to be an internship.


"Is GSoC considered an internship, a job, or any form of employment?

No. GSoC is an activity that the student performs as an independent developer for which he/she is paid a stipend."

I speculate that part of the reason for this is that "internship" is
ambiguous and has different meanings across different cultures.
