Sign-up to mentor a project for Outreachy by March 10

Hi all,

The GNOME Foundation has confirmed funding for three spots in Outreachy for the May round! If you would like 
to mentor this round, please head to as 
soon as possible and submit your project idea there. All project ideas need to be added in the Outreachy's 
application system by mentors by March 10 and approved by the triage committee (Matthias Clasen, Allan Day, 
and Sriram Ramkrishna) and coordinator (me) by March 12. Only ideas approved in the system by March 12 will 
be available for Outreachy this round, so even if you are working with a prospective candidate on a project 
idea, you have to add it by March 10 to provide some time for us to review it. Mentors or applicants will not 
be able to propose new project ideas for this round of Outreachy after that.

You can offer the same project idea for Outreachy as you are offering for Google Summer of Code (you still 
need to list it in the Outreachy system as described above). If you have the same applicant who applies for 
both programs, we will first consider them for GSoC, as GNOME has more spots there. However, please note that 
the GSoC stipend is less than the Outreachy stipend in many countries. Outreachy has some guidance related to 
that for applicants: and 

Because GNOME only usually has a few participants in Outreachy, we are looking to offer projects that are 
most strategic for GNOME. These include, but are not limited to, projects in the area of privacy, GTK+, core 
experience, core applications, developer experience, and development infrastructure.

Outreachy application deadline is March 26. Please also consider applying or encouraging others to apply with 
the help of the resources at More information about GNOME's participation 
in Outreachy is available at

Please feel free to e-mail gnome-outreachy-list gnome org , which is a private mailing list with Outreachy 
coordinator and mentors for GNOME, with any questions.
