Debian is welcoming applicants for Outreachy and GSoC 2019

On Thu 28 March 2019 with tags announce gsoc outreachy
Written by Laura Arjona Reina and Lesley Mitchell

Debian is dedicated to increasing the diversity of contributors to the project and improving the inclusivity of the project. We strongly believe working towards these goals provides benefits both for people from backgrounds that are currently under-represented in free software, and for the wider movement, by increasing the range of skills, experiences and viewpoints contributing to it.

As part of this outreach effort, Debian is participating in the next round of Outreachy.

The application period for the May 2019 to August 2019 round has been extended until April 2, and Debian offers the following projects:

Outreachy invites applicants who are women (both cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people to apply. Anyone who faces systemic bias or discrimination in the technology industry of their country is also invited to apply.

Don't wait up! You can learn more details on how to submit your application or get help in our wiki page for Outreachy and the Outreachy website.

Debian is also participating in the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) with eight projects, and the student application period is open until April 9.

You can learn more details on how to submit your GSoC application or get help for in our wiki page for GSoC and the Google Summer of Code website.

We encourage people who are elegible for Outreachy and GSoC to submit their application to both programs.

Debian is applying as a mentoring organization for the Google Summer of Code 2019, an internship program open to university students aged 18 and up, and will apply soon for the next round of Outreachy, an internship program for people from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech.

Please join us and help expanding Debian and mentoring new free software contributors!

If you have a project idea related to Debian and can mentor (or can coordinate the mentorship with some other Debian Developer or contributor, or within a Debian team), please add the details to the Debian GSoC2019 Projects wiki page by Tuesday, February 5 2019.

Participating in these programs has many benefits for Debian and the wider free software community. If you have questions, please come and ask us on IRC #debian-outreach or the debian-outreach mailing list.
