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 Fedora

Fedora 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 Fedora?

Fedora is a Linux-based operating system, which offers versions focused on three possible uses: workstation, server, and cloud.

Fedora is a Linux-based free software operating system. You can use Fedora in addition to, or instead of, other operating systems such as Microsoft Windows™ or Mac OS X™. The Fedora operating system is completely free of cost for you to enjoy and share.

The Fedora Project is the name of a worldwide community of people who love, use, and build free software. We want to lead in the creation and spread of free code and content by working together as a community. Fedora is sponsored by Red Hat, the world's most trusted provider of open source technology. Red Hat invests in Fedora to encourage collaboration and incubate innovative new free software technologies.

We believe in the value of free software, and fight to protect and promote solutions anyone can use and redistribute. Not only is the Fedora operating system made from free software, but we use free software exclusively to provide it to you. The website you are reading this on right now, in fact, is made from free software and serves millions of people every month.

We also believe in the power of collaboration. Our contributors work with free software project teams around the world we call "upstream." They create much of the software found in Fedora. We collaborate closely with them so everyone can benefit from our work, and get access to improvements as soon as possible. By working in the same direction as these project teams, we can ensure that free software works better together, and provides the best experience for users. We also can include improvements quickly, which helps not only users, but the upstream as well.

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
