The MLH Fellowship is a 12 week internship alternative for software engineers. Instead of working for a single company, you'll work on the Open Source projects that every company depends on.
The MLH Fellowship aims to create a high-quality remote internship alternative that's available to students worldwide. It's designed from the ground up to recreate the best of aspects of a great internship experience with a focus on education, mentorship, and fun. So, how does it work?
At the beginning of the program, fellows are placed into small groups called "pods". Each pod contains 8-10 students, a professional mentor, and 2-3 Open Source project maintainers. The pods work together to contribute to their assigned projects over the course of the program.
Your pod will meet daily for the full term of the program. Most days will start with a standup where you'll plan out your day and hear about what everyone is working on. Usually you'll be working with 2-3 other fellows on a task related to one of the Open Source projects your pod supports. You might be pair programming, working through open issues, or writing up documentation together.
Your pod's mentor has one job – help you level up by contributing to Open Source. You can reach out for help with everything from scoping to fixing a bug to reviewing your code. They'll even lead regular educational events for your pod like lunch and learns, show and tell, and workshops.
We know that a great internship experience isn't all work. That's why we've created plenty of opportunities for you to build your professional network and have fun too. You can expect an event each week designed to help you learn, build, and share. Hackathons, workshops, socials, and so much more.
