Congratulations to the 44 applicants who are accepted as Outreachy interns for the May 2018 to August 2018 round!
We had a whopping 1,264 people who filled out an eligibility check and were eligible for the program. The number of Outreachy applicants who made a contribution to a free and open source project doubled this round. Last round, 105 people made a contribution. This round, 200 people made a contribution to a free and open source project! Of the applicants who made a contribution, 175 people filled out a final application. We're so proud of the work the Outreachy applicants made at learning how to contribute to free and open source software!
If you weren't accepted for this round, we encourage you to apply for the next round you're eligible. Many Outreachy applicants take two or three tries to get into the program, and the skills you've learned this round will give you an advantage next round.
The applications for the next round of Outreachy internships will open in September 2018 for the December 2018 to March 2019 internship round. Applications for the May 2019 to August 2019 internship round will open in February 2019.
