Hi folks. DIAL has been able to secure funding for an OSC “fellowship” to run each quarter. Let’s discuss here what the program might need that such fellow could support!
TL;DR: A fellow is generally a student or early-career role that is looking for an experiential learning project over a 3-month period. So we should ensure the scope is appropriate for someone with both (a) that level of skills, and (b) that level of time commitment. We could also “double dip” and have more than one fellow in a given quarter, as long as we plan on four (4) across between now and the end of September 2018.
This is in addition to our other outreach & “internship” programs such as Outreachy, Google Summer of Code, etc.
So, let the debate begin … what type of folks should we be looking for?
