Let us know how we are doing
The application process is under review and will change for 2020. The information below will be updated in February/March 2020.
Step 1: review eligibility
The Hyperlegder Internship Program is aimed at providing a structured and guided learning opportunity for college and university students interested in becoming open source contributors to the Hyperledger community. We welcome students enrolled in accredited higher education institutions across the globe to apply (some restrictions may apply). Please first review the eligibility requirements to determine if you're eligible to apply.
Step 2: discover projects
Carefully review the 17 Hyperledger internship projects that are open for applications in 2019 and identify which project(s) you're interested in. Ask yourself which projects you are the most excited or curious about exploring? The project descriptions, learning objectives and outcomes, and any additional information or links on the project page may give you some insight. Additionally, ask yourself which projects are a better fit for your profile. Be sure to read about the educational level and skills required or desired to evaluate if you are qualified. Lastly, some internships require full-time commitment in the summer while others will allow both full-time and part-time interns. Make sure the program timetable will fit into your summer and school schedule.
Each applicant may apply for multiple but no more than FOUR projects. We recommend that you focus your effort on 2 projects and submit a quality application for those two projects.
Step 3: contact mentor(s)
Feel free to contact the mentor(s) for the projects that you are interested in to learn more and to clarify any information that's unclear to you. You may be able to discover more about the desirable background and skills of the intern the mentor(s) are looking to work with. The best applications are often from students who took the time to interact and discuss their ideas with the mentors before submitting an application.
Step 4: prepare application materials
Besides collecting standard demographic and contact information on the application, we will ask you to upload your resume, a cover letter, and proof of enrollment (college transcript, or a scan of student ID, or letter of admissions offer for those who are graduating from high school). The cover letter will ask you to address the following questions:
- How did you find out about our program?
- Why are you interested in the project(s) you're applying to?
- What experience and knowledge/skills do you have that are applicable to the requirements of the project(s) you're applying to?
- What do you hope to get out of this experience?
Make sure to have these materials ready before you proceed to submit your application. We're looking for qualified applicants who are passionate about becoming active contributors and future leaders in the Hyperledger open source community through this internship experience.
Step 5: submit the application
