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 GNOME

GNOME 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 GNOME?

GNOME is a GNU/Linux-based innovative desktop that is design-driven and easy to use.

GNOME is an innovative free software desktop that is distributed with many operating systems. It is design-driven and easy to use. GNOME has an exciting and motivated community of people working on projects they feel passionate about and a wide community of users. You can learn more about the latest going-ons in GNOME by reading Planet GNOME blog aggregator and GNOME news. You can find more information about GNOME's participation in Outreachy and advice for newcomers on the dedicated page.

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 start your required contribution as soon as possible!

Each project mentor is looking for applicants who have different skills. Sometimes a skill is a hard requirement for an applicant to have. Other times, a mentor might prefer an applicant to have a skill, but they would accept an applicant as an intern who didn't have that skill. Some skills are "nice to have" meaning it would be great if applicants have this skill, but the mentor doesn't have a strong preference.

Each project will require a different level of experience with a particular skill. Experience levels are indicated with numbers:

Mentors are willing to teach this skill to applicants with no experience at all
Applicants should have read about the skill
Applicants should have used this skill in class or personal projects
Applicants should be able to expand on their skills with the help of mentors
Applicants who are experienced in this skill will have the chance to expand it further
