The next round of the Outreachy global mentorship program is fast approaching, and applications are now being accepted for internships that will happen around the year-end timeframe. Outreachy is a diversity initiative that provides paid, remote internships to people subject to systemic bias and impacted by underrepresentation in the technical industry where they are living.
If you want to learn skills working on software development or other tasks in open source communities, Outreachy is a great way to level up!
Outreachy provides internships to work on open source. Internships are:
Paid - $6,000 USD total internship stipend
Remote - both interns and mentors work remotely
3 months - internships run May to August, or December to March
The deadline to apply is 2021-09-03T16:00:00Z. If you are interested in applying for an internship in this upcoming round, please read the applicant guide documentation for all of the details and next steps. Please note, not all participating organizations will be identified yet by the time of your application deadline, so even if you don’t find the “perfect” org to work with, you should apply anyway if you are interested.
The deadline to apply is 2021-09-10T16:00:00Z. If you are a maintainer or other volunteer leader in an open source software project, and you would like your organizations to participate, please read the community guide documentation for all of the details and next steps. Please note, non-humanitarian open source communities need to provide their own funding for at least one intern ($6,500 USD). Humanitarian open source communities are invited to apply to the Outreachy general fund. If your community is approved, Outreachy will fully fund at least one intern. Outreachy is especially interested in funding humanitarian projects involving climate change, infectious diseases, and mental health. Both humanitarian and non-humanitarian communities can apply to receive additional funding for interns.
