Outreachy Internships 2019


(Redon Skikuli) #1

A great opportunity for everyone making their first steps in Free Open Source world.

Outreachy provides three-month internships to work in Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Interns are paid a stipend of $5,500 and have a $500 travel stipend available to them. Outreachy internship projects may include programming, user experience, documentation, illustration and graphical design, or data science. Interns often find employment after their internship with Outreachy sponsors or in jobs that use the skills they learned during their internship.
Outreachy internships are open to applicants around the world. Interns work remotely with mentors from FOSS communities.

Thanks for sharing even more info Jona. Hopefully there will be many applications from Tirana (specifically) and Albania (in general) from more diverse and underrepresented groups, which will bring more inclusion in our community.
