Outreachy is seeking open source communities to participate in the May to August 2021 internship round.
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.
Please see the full mentor schedule below.
