GitHub announces GitHub Externships, an opportunity for students to engage with companies in India, via fellowship programs, and build the right skills future developers need, to succeed in an enterprise environment.
The GitHub Externship is a 90-day fellowship program for third or pre-final year students of GitHub Campus Partner schools. The initiative provides hands-on learning with practical and on ground experience. It’s collaborative, remote, and happens under the guidance of expert mentors.
Students get to select from a vast variety of Open Source projects listed down by different companies. They get paired with a mentor from participating organisations who will handhold them and review their work on a regular basis. Companies reviews the performance regularly and also provide a monthly stipend.
