Hello everyone,

We have an update on the Outreachy program, including a request for
volunteer mentors and funding. For those of you who are not aware,
Outreachy helps people from underrepresented groups get involved in free
and open source software by matching interns with established mentors in
the upstream community. For more info, please visit:

OpenStack is participating in the Outreachy May 2018 to August 2018
internships. The application period opens on February 12th. As the
OpenStack PTG is around the corner, I understand many of you might be busy
preparing for that. But putting in your project idea as soon as possible
will help prospective interns to start working on their application. Plus,
it's now a requirement to have at least one project idea submitted on the
Outreachy website for OpenStack to show up under the current internship

Interested mentors - please publish your project ideas on this page
https://www.outreachy.org/communities/cfp/openstack/submit-project/. Here
is a link that helps you get acquainted with mentorship process:

We are also looking for additional sponsors to help support the increase in
OpenStack applicants. The sponsorship cost is 6,500 USD per intern, which
is used to provide them a stipend for the three-month program. You can
learn more about sponsorship here: https://www.outreachy.org/sponsor/ .
Outreachy has been one of the most important and effective diversity
efforts we’ve invested in. We have had many interns turn into long term
OpenStack contributors. Please help spread the word.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor or sponsoring an intern, please
contact me (mahati.chamarthy AT intel.com) or Victoria (victoria AT
redhat.com). Thank you!
