Contribute to the free software movement: Intern at the FSF! Apply by November 10

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) is looking for interns to spend the winter contributing to work in one of three areas: campaigns, licensing, or with our tech team. Apply by November 10

Do you believe that free software is crucial to a free society? Do you want to help people learn why free software matters, and how to use it? Do you want to dig deep into software freedom issues like copyleft, Digital Restrictions Management (DRM), or surveillance and encryption? Or, do you want to learn systems administration, design, or other tasks using only free software?

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) is looking for interns to spend the winter contributing to work in one of three areas: campaigns, licensing, or with our tech team.

The FSF office has resumed work in person, so there will be opportunities for both in-person work and remote work.

These positions are unpaid, but the FSF will provide any appropriate documentation you might need to receive funding and school credit from outside sources. We place an emphasis on providing hands-on educational opportunities for interns, in which they work closely with staff mentors on projects that match their skills and interests.

Interns can choose from the following fields of work:

Winter internships have a flexible beginning, with possible start dates as early as December, and typically run for a period of twelve weeks. The deadline to apply is November 10, 2022.

To apply, send a letter of interest and a resume with two references to hiring@fsf.org. Please send all application materials in free software-friendly formats like .pdf, .odt, and .txt. Use "Winter internship application" as the subject line of your email. Please include links to your writing, design, or coding work if it applies -- personal, professional, or class work is acceptable. URLs are often preferred, though email attachments in free formats are acceptable, too. Learn more about our internships, and direct any questions to info@fsf.org.
