We have one week left in the Outreachy application period. All
applications and contributions to projects are due on October 23.
Please note that applicants will not receive any individual email
confirmation that their application is under review. Selected interns
will be notified via email on November 9.

Additionally, due to several questions, we have clarified our
requirements for applicants who are students:


"You will not be in school full-time for at least seven consecutive
weeks between December 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018.  School weeks include
all weeks during a school semester and during an exams session,
including short breaks and weekends. Full-time school means being
enrolled in school during a semester when you are taking more than half
of the credits a typical student takes."

In general, students from India who are taking two full-time terms are
not eligible for the Outreachy December to March internship rounds. They
are encouraged to apply for the May to August internship round.
