Fedora: Call for Outreachy mentors

Outreachy provides internships to people from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech. For more information about what Outreachy is and the deadlines for mentors and coordinators, read the Community Call for Participation page.

If you are an Outreachy applicant, you should look over the list of projects and pick a project from that list.

Submit an Outreachy Intern Project Proposal

Fedora welcomes experienced community contributors to help out as mentors. Each mentor will need to submit their an intern project proposal. The project proposal will then be reviewed and approved by the FOSS community coordinators. Additional co-mentors for the intern project will be able to sign up for the project after it has been approved by the community coordinator.

All proposed intern projects need to be released under licenses that are either an OSI-approved open source license that is also identified by the FSF as a free software license, OR a Creative Commons license approved for free cultural works.

Please read the additional Outreachy project requirements before submitting an intern project proposal.

Please make sure you understand the mentor requirements, especially the time commitment requirement.

Outreachy applicants should not submit project proposals through this form. You need to look over the list of projects and pick a project from that list.
