Open Source Robotics Foundation is a participating organization in the
next round of the Outreachy program.


Outreachy helps people from groups underrepresented in free and open
source software get involved. The current round of internships is open
internationally to women (cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer
people. Additionally, it's open to residents and nationals of the
United States of any gender who are Black/African American,
Hispanic/Latin@, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or
Pacific Islander.

In an effort to get more people involved in free and open-source
software and robotics, OSRF is offering internships from December 7,
2015 to March 7, 2016. The application deadline is November 2, 2015.

Participants will work remotely, while getting guidance from an
assigned mentor and collaborating within their project’s team and the
rest of the community. The projects mainly include software
development but they might be opened to other ideas, such as web
development, 3D modeling, graphic design, or improving documentation.
The stipend for the program is $5,500 (USD).

Below you can find the list of potential ideas for the program. Many
of the posted ideas are Gazebo-related, but interested applicants can
work with a potential mentor to propose an idea for contributing to
the ROS ecosystem.
