Open Source Internships programs to target in 2022πŸ₯²

Subscribe to my newsletter and never miss my upcoming articles

Today I decided to put myself in blogging, doing things a different way and bringing something better to you aimed at helping.

After thousand of queries on different search engines, I finally found out the real legit paid internship that will also be some kind of challenging for you trying to join.

Open source is source code that is made freely available for possible modification and redistribution. Products include permission to use the source code, design documents, or content of the product. The open-source model is a decentralized software-development model that encourages open collaboration. The main principle of open-source software development is peer production, with products such as source code, blueprints, and documentation freely available to the public. Sounds appetizing...?

Before diving into the list of internships, here are tips on what can make you take over the internship.

  • Early application
  • Commitment
  • Consulting your mails update
  • Secret: πŸ₯²If lying is possible, do it in a grand style

The list above is small and sounds funny but get me right, it's important.

Let's begin it, let's stop boring history as usual...



1. The Google Summer Of Code (GSoC)

Google Summer Of Code is a mentorship program started by Google back in 2006 in order to bring more people, especially the students into the open source communities by acting as a bridge between the two. The program usually starts in the month of January in which Open Source Organizations apply to participate in the program and the results for the selected organizations got announced 40 days after the initial application process.

Now it's time for the Student's application process as soon as the Organizations results are announced the application process for the students starts after approx. 20 days. and lasts only 15 days. After the application period is over the organization reviews the student's applications and selects them based on their proposals. As soon as you got selected into the program your official GSOC journey begins. The stipend is based on the Purchasing Power Parity of the country in which you live.

The stipend offered is 1500 - 3300$ depending upon the region. In the process, code is created and released for all.
