This page contains information specific to GNOME's participation in the Outreach Program for Women internships from June 17 to September 23, 2013.

Seven participants did internships with GNOME during this round. The internships were generously sponsored by the GNOME Foundation, Free Software Foundation, Red Hat, Google, and Bloomberg.

Only non-coding project ideas are listed here. To avoid duplicating the ideas listing, all coding ideas are listed among GNOME's Google Summer of Code project ideas and you are welcome to apply to work on any of them through the Outreach Program for Women. GNOME's page for the program explains how you can choose a project.
