GNOME: Time to apply for OPW and GSoC

With the summer coming closer, the GNOME Foundation are excited to announce applications are open for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) and Outreach Program for Women.

Outreach Program for Women

Outreach Program for Women offers a $5500 stipend for a four months internship working with a Free/Open Source organization. The program accepts proposals not only for coding projects, but also for documentation, design, and marketing projects. Every organization has mentors to guide and work with accepted participants during the course of the internship and application process.

As part of the application process, applicants must contribute to the project they indents to work on during the internship.

“Participating in the GNOME community as an intern allowed me to gain an understanding of the technologies used for development and the structure of free/open source teams. These skills have helped to enrich my understanding of FOSS and computer science”
-Meg Ford former Outreach Program for Women intern

The GNOME community encourages anyone interested to visit the Outreach Program for Women website, and to check our wiki where project ideas are listed. The application deadline for this round of the program is March 19.

Google Summer of Code

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is an internship program sponsored by Google. Just like the Outreach Program for Women, GSoC offers a $5500 scholarship for students to work on Free/Open Source projects along with a mentor from the community.

2014 marks the 10th year of the program, and the GNOME project has participated every year. The program presents a great opportunity for students to get involved with our community, and to use their developments skill to contribute to the project. Many project ideas are available, and as usual students are also welcome to discuss their own ideas with prospective mentors!

Applications for this year’s round of GSoC are open until March 21.

Join Us

We are looking forward to welcome this year’s interns for Google Summer of Code and Outreach Program for Women!

If you’re interest in applying to work with GNOME, get in touch with us! The sooner you start your application, the better your chances to be accepted for both programs.
