Outreachy provides paid, remote, three-month internships. Outreachy's goal is to support diversity in Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). 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.
