So, it looks like you will only be free for 6 weeks from full-time school (December 5 to January 18) which unfortunately is less than the required time to be eligible. I would encourage you to consider applying to the next round of Outreachy and if you are interested in contributing to our projects, let us know, and we can help you get started! thanks.

About your response to the following question:

  • Will you have any other time commitments, such as school work, another job, planned vacation, etc, during the duration of the program? From second week of January, I'll have my college (last semester). A full time student has to take 27 credits but since I'll be taking up an internship, I have to take only 12 credits therefore I can dedicate enough time for the project.
