Outreachy Internships Available

[Dutch Lock Down Day Three Hundred Eight]


Grant for Humanitarian Open Source Communities

Deadline: 01 March 2021 at 1600 UTC

Outreachy is a paid, remote internship program. Internships last three months. Interns and mentors work completely remotely.

Outreachy’s goal is to improve diversity in open source. Past interns are 92% women, 64% people of color, and 12% from a historically disadvantaged caste or tribe. Interns come from around the world, with many interns located in India, Nigeria, and Uganda.

But first the news:

Outreachy is providing a grant to fund interns working with humanitarian open source communities. The Outreachy grant will pay for the internship stipend. This is an ideal chance to get a diverse set of people working with your humanitarian open source community.


Humanitarian communities will provide an internship project and mentors to work with the intern. Mentors will need to commit to working 5 hours per week with the intern during the internship period (May 24 to August 24).

Outreachy is committing to fund at least one intern ($6,500 USD) per community. We expect to fund 5 to 10 communities for the May 2021 internship round. The deadline to apply is March 1, 2021 at 4pm UTC.
