Yes, it is possible. There are some instructions for this on
the wiki somewhere I think. Of course it is only applicable to
TeXmacs running on Linux. This also enables the use of Axiom

Student applications closed March 26. Today (April 10) is the
day that all applications must have assigned mentors. Revisions
and comments on applications submitted before March 26 will be
accepted until April 11 at which point the winners will be
posted by Google.

But Google has been juggling these dates a little, perhaps there
is a little slack, however I do not think any new applications
are being accepted.

Unfortunately we did not receive any eligible applications from
students regarding Axiom. :-( I think we should try to analyze
why that happened. Although I do think that Lisp is an important
programming language, I fear that Axiom's association with Lisp
is of very little benefit to Axiom. It seems that very of the
already very few student Lisp programmers are really interested
in Axiom... Does anyone have any other ideas about why we did
not receive any applications?

I have just updated FrontPage.
