Grant date: October 2021
Outreachy is one of the Software Freedom Conservancy’s member projects. It provides internships to Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) developers. Anyone who faces under-representation, systemic bias, or discrimination in the technology industry of their country is invited to apply. Outreachy internships are open to applicants around the world. Interns work remotely and are paid a stipend of $6,000 USD for the three month internship. Outreachy expressly invites women (both cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people to apply, as well as other under-represented communities.
With this grant, Outreachy will:
- Continue to provide over 50 internships twice a year and strive to increase internships to 60-80 internships per round.
- Provide explicit funding opportunities to projects working on humanitarian projects.
- Strengthen operations to bring resiliency and sustainability to the program.
- Communicate with relevant target populations so as to more effectively spread the word about the program and also develop strategic partnerships to further amplify its impact.
