Initial applications are now open for the December 2019 to March 2020 round. The deadline for completing an initial application is Sept. 24, 2019 at 4pm UTC. Fill yours out ASAP:


Applicants must submit an initial application to have a chance to move onto the contribution period.

We encourage people to submit an initial application, even if they don't see a project they're interested in. The final project list will not be available until October 1, after the initial application deadline closes.

As we previously announced, there are some changes to the Outreachy application process. We recommend you read more about the changes:
