About Outreachy

Outreachy provides internships to work in Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) and is open to applicants around the world. All internships are remote, opening up a wide array of opportunities for interns. Additionally, these are paid internships with other cool perks including travel stipend and access to experienced mentors from FOSS communities. Interns often find employment after their internship with Outreachy sponsors or in jobs that use the skills they learned during their internship.

Outreach expressly invites women (both cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people, residents and nationals of the United States of any gender who are Black/African American, Hispanic/Latin@, Native American/American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander to apply. Anyone who faces under-representation, systemic bias, or discrimination in the technology industry of their country is invited to apply.
