Hi everyone,

Quick update on the Outreachy [0] program, including a request for funding
and volunteer mentors. For those of you who are not aware, Outreachy helps
people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software get
involved by matching interns with established mentors in the upstream

OpenStack have confirmed the participation to this Outreachy round. We are
already receiving applicants interested in contributing to different
projects. but we don't have confirmed mentors yet. So, if you want to
continue with your participation (if you already joined in previous rounds)
or you would like to join this round for the first time, please do! The
upcoming internship will take place *December 5, 2017 to March 5, 2018*.
Application process will open on *September 7th*, and we would need to have
internship ideas and mentors guidance from that date. You can learn more
about what is expected from mentors and how to apply here:

We have one sponsor confirmed, but we could use some additional sponsors to
help support the large increase in OpenStack applicants. The sponsorship
cost is 6,500 USD per intern, which provide them a stipend for the
three-month program. You can learn more about sponsorship here:

I personally believe Outreachy is one of the most important and effective
diversity efforts we’ve invested in to date. We’ve had some amazing
graduates become long-term contributors to our community.

Please help spread the word. If you are interested in becoming a mentor or
sponsoring an intern, please contact me (victoria AT redhat.com) or Mahati
(mahati.chamarthy AT gmail.com).
