Pls RT Want a paid remote internship in open source? @outreachy is for ppl traditionally underrepresented in tech https://www.outreachy.org/apply
Applications are now open for Outreachy, an internship program for people traditionally underrepresented in tech. Outreachy offers remote, three-month internships with a $5,500 stipend and a $500 travel stipend. These internships are open world-wide to all women (cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people. Additionally, they are open in the U.S to all Black/African American, Hispanic/Latin@, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander people.
Interns work remotely with experienced mentors in free and open source software projects. The internships are often focused on programming tasks, but some projects offer internships in user experience design, graphic design, documentation, web development, marketing, translation, and more.
The Outreachy internships run from December 5, 2017 to March 5, 2018. More details and eligibility criteria can be found here:
Applying to Outreachy is a little different than other internship programs. During the application period (September 7 to October 23), potential interns are expected to make contact with one or more of the open source project mentors, and make a contribution to the project. Outreachy organizers have found that the strongest applicants contact mentors early, ask a lot of questions, and continually submit small contributions throughout the application period.
One of the Outreachy organizers (Sarah Sharp) can give a virtual introductory talk with interested organizations or universities in the coming weeks. You can see her availability and schedule a meeting here:
Please let us know if you have any questions about the program. The Outreachy organizers (Karen Sandler, Sarah Sharp, Marina Zhurakhinskaya, Cindy Pallares, and Tony Sebro) can all be reached at a private e-mail email@example.com
We hope you'll help us spread the word about the Outreachy internships!
