There's less than two weeks ago for those identifying as women or belonging to certain ethnic groups within the United States to apply for this winter's Outreachy program to get paid to be involved with free/open-source software communities.

Outreachy -- formerly known as the Outreach Program for Women -- was renamed to expand the minorities it will let into the program. Besides continuing to let in women or anyone identifying as a women or trans-men and gender-queer, they're letting in certain new groups this time around. Those living in the United States that are black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander are also welcome to apply.

Those belonging to those groups can apply by 2 November to be involved with open-source while receiving a $5500 USD stipend for the few months of involvement. Fedora, GNOME, the Linux Kernel, Mozilla, EFF, QEMU, and Xen are among the list of participating projects for this session.

If you are interested in potentially applying, see the GNOME Wiki.
