[Xmca-l] Fwd: [liberationtech] Outreachy - Internerships for Underrrepresented People in Tech



I am not sure if this forum still exists, but if it does, perhaps some
folks out there will find the program below of interest to themselves or
their students/friends.

Outreachy internships are open internationally to women (cis and
trans), trans men, and genderqueer people. Internships are also open
to 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. We are
planning to expand the program to more participants from
underrepresented backgrounds in the future.

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