My name is Kalou Katerina, i am 29 years old and currently graduating from the Msc of Neuroscience at the University of Italy Trento. I am absolutely interested in programming and that is the path i would like to follow for continuing my studies. I just learned about the Internships for Women at OSFR and i would really like to apply. I am specifically interested for dvelopping the ROS independent library for system dependency resolution or contributing to the ROS .ORG visual design I would like to know if it is to late for me to apply and how exactly i can make a contribution together with the application for these 2 specific projects. Thank you very much for your help KInd regards, Kalou Katerina

From Tully Foote's recent message on ros-users:

The Open Source Robotics Foundation is a participating organization in the latest Outreach Program for Women.

In an effort to get more women involved in free and open-source software and robotics, OSRF is offering Outreach Program for Women internships from December 10, 2013 to March 10, 2014. The application deadline is November 11, 2013. The applicants need to get in touch with individual projects they are interested in working on ahead of the application deadline.

Participants will work remotely from home, while getting guidance from an assigned mentor and collaborating within their project’s team and the rest of the community. The projects mainly include software development but they might be opened to other ideas, such as web development, 3D modeling, or graphic design. The stipend for the program is $5,000 (USD). Any woman available for a full time internship who has not previously participated in the Outreach Program for Women or Google Summer of Code is welcome to apply.

Below you can find the list of potential ideas for the program.
