Outreachy internships

What is Outreachy?

Outreachy is a program that provides internships for people from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech. Interns are paid a stipend of $5,500 for a three month internship. The internship is completely remote, and interns come from around the world.

Interns work one-on-one with a mentor from Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) communities. The internship projects range from programming, user experience, documentation, illustration and graphical design, to data science.

Interns have $500 travel stipend available to use to attend tech events. Many interns use the travel stipend to network and find a job. Interns often find employment after their internship with Outreachy sponsors or in jobs that use the skills they learned during their internship.

For more information on who is eligible for Outreachy internships, see the eligibility page. A description of the application process can be found on the application instructions page

Outreachy Internships with Xen Project

Xen Project is a Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) community that is offering internship projects through the Outreachy program.

Internships with other FOSS communities can be found on the the current round page.

What is Xen Project?

Xen Project is a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project that develops the Xen Hypervisor and related virtualization technologies. The Xen Hypervisor is a leading virtualization platform that is powering some of the largest clouds in production today, such as Alibaba Cloud, Amazon Web Services, Rackspace Public Cloud and many hosting services. It also fosters the creation of lightweight Unikernel systems with the Mirage OS incubator project, as well as many independent efforts which use our hypervisor as a base for their work.

How do I get help?

Each FOSS community has one or more coordinators, who help answer applicants' questions and connect them to project mentors. This community currently has no approved coordinator, or you have not filled out the eligibility check and contact information is hidden from you.

Each project will have one or more mentors. Outreachy applicants work one-on-one with mentors to complete contributions to the project during the application process. Only applicants who make a contribution to a project will be eligible to be selected for an internship. Interns then work directly with the mentors on their project during the three month internship period.

Each project may have different communication channels, issue trackers, and different ways to make a contribution. The project mentor is your guide to introduce you to the project community and contribution norms. Mentors are here to help answer your questions, encourage you, and help you when you get stuck.

Open Projects

Mentors for these projects are willing to work with new Outreachy applicants. Please note that as the round goes on, mentors may close their project to new applicants because they are already working with many applicants. Make sure to contact a mentor and start your contribution as soon as possible!
