OPNFV Internship is for University students–either undergraduate or graduate–who are interested in contributing to the OPNFV project. Each intern will be working with a mentor in the OPNFV community to complete a project either in 3 or 6 months (interns are expected to dedicate a minimum of 20 hours a week on their project). This is a paid internship program and the internship project can start any time of the year (i.e. not just limited to summer in the northern hemisphere). Finally, we welcome interns from anywhere in the world.
