Hello folks,

We would like to invite you to apply to the Outreachy program with the
Wikimedia Foundation (a non-profit organization behind Wikipedia)!

*About the Outreachy program*

Wikimedia will be mentoring ~6 projects in the Outreachy’s December 2020 to
February 2021 Round, around data science and engineering. The initial
applications are due *September 20th at 4 pm UTC*.

Outreachy offers three-month internships to work remotely in Free and Open
Source Software (FOSS) projects, coding, and non-coding related (e.g.,
design, documentation, translation, outreach, and research), with
experienced mentors. Outreachy internships run twice a year – from May to
August and December to March. Interns are paid a stipend of USD 5,500 for
the three months of work. They also have a USD 500 stipend to travel to
conferences and events. Interns often find employment after their
internship with Outreachy sponsors or in jobs that use the skills they
learned during their internship.

Outreachy is open to both students and non-students. Outreachy expressly
invites the following people to apply:

* Women (both cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people.

Wikimedia possible, and advocate for policies that enable Wikimedia and
