Outreachy is a project started by the GNOME foundation, now run by the Software Freedom Conservancy, and sponsored by several FOSS projects and FOSS friendly companies, to encourage women and underrepresented minorities to participate in FOSS internships. The project runs is similar to Google Summer of Code, with an emphasis on underrepresented groups. An important difference between the two is that Outreachy is only for new participants to FOSS. Repeat internships are not allowed, and previous GSOC participants are not eligible.

Please see here for application info. Interested students should introduce themselves by sending an email to wine-devel@winehq.org, with information about themselves and their project of interest. Introducing yourself and idling on #winehackers on Freenode is also highly encouraged. As with Google Summer of Code, applicants must have successfully a patch into wine to be considered. A patch in the area of code that your project would be in are best. For simple starter bugs, consider sending a stub for an unimplemented function that currently breaks an application. These are useful, but easy enough for a beginner to accomplish. Example bugs can be found here

For a list of projects, please see the Google Summer of Code page
