What is Outreachy?

Outreachy provides internships to work on open source. Internships are available twice a year, from May to August and December to March. Outreachy internships are three months long. Interns are paid a stipend of $6,000 USD total.

Outreachy internships are open to applicants around the world. Interns work remotely, and are not required to move.

Interns work with mentors from open source communities. Outreachy internship projects may include programming, user experience, documentation, illustration, graphical design, data science, project marketing, user advocacy, or community event planning. 

Please check the eligibility criteria to determine if you're eligible for an Outreachy internship:
