Hi All,

HOT and Mapzen are going to work together to support an intern in the
Outreach Program for Women(1). This is through the generous financial
support of Mapzen.

Right now we are putting a wikipage together of possible projects(2). Then
interested individuals will be able to make a proposal and apply to the
program. It is a full-time internship with a stipend of $5500 taking place
from the 9th of December until the 9th of March. Unlike Google Summer of
Code which the program is based on the projects don't have to specifically
be coding, though they certainly could be. Please if you are interested in
helping mentor or have project ideas please add them to the wiki.

Some background on the program from the OPM website: "The Outreach Program
for Women (OPW) was inspired by Google's Summer of Code and by how few
women applied for it. The GNOME Foundation first started the OPW with one
round in 2006, and then resumed the effort in 2010 with rounds organized
twice a year. In the May-August 2012 round, the Software Freedom
Conservancy joined the OPW with one internship with the Twisted project. In
the January-April 2013 round, many other free and open source organizations
joined the program.

This program is a welcoming link that connects talented and passionate
newcomers with people working in free and open source software and guides
them through their first contribution. Through OPW, participants learn how
exciting and valuable work on software freedom can be, while helping us to
build a more inclusive community."
