GNOME is an innovative Free Software desktop. It is easy to use and is the most
popular desktop distributed with free operating systems.
In an effort to get more women involved in Free Software, the GNOME project is
sponsoring several internships for women from December 12, 2011 to March 12,
2012. The application deadline for the program is October 31. The applicants
need to get in touch with individual GNOME projects ahead of time to decide
which project they are interested in working on and make a small contribution
to the project.
Participants will work remotely from home, while getting guidance from an
assigned mentor and collaborating within their projectâ€™s team and the rest of
the GNOME community. The projects include developing software for the core
desktop, file management, messaging, popular applications, educational
activities, and the platform libraries. There are also non-coding projects,
such as graphic design, documentation, and marketing. The stipend for the
program is $5,000 (USD).
Please visit http://www.gnome.org to learn more and apply. The mentorship
opportunities are also available throughout the year for anyone interested in
getting started contributing to GNOME outside of the internship program.
