Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is software that gives the user
the freedom to use, share, study, and improve it. FOSS contributors
believe that this is the best way to develop software because it
benefits society, creates a fun collaborative community around a
project, and allows anyone to make innovative changes that reach many
In an effort to improve diversity in FOSS, OSRF is offering remote and
mentored Outreachy internships through a program organized by Software
Freedom Conservancy. These internships are open internationally 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. The stipend for the program is $5,500 (USD).
Applicants must be available for full-time, 40-hours a week,
internships. The application deadline is October 17, 2016 and the
internship dates are December 6, 2016 to March 6, 2017. College
students from the Southern Hemisphere who will have a school summer
break during most of this time are particularly encouraged to apply.
Coding, user experience design, documentation, bug triage, community
engagement, and other types of projects might be available. To apply,
you need to connect with OSRF early, select a project you want to work
on, make a few relevant contributions with the help of a mentor, and
create a project plan.
Please consider applying for Outreachy, encourage someone else to
apply, or help spread the word by forwarding this message to any
interested university and community groups.
