SciML has many on-going developer programs for helping fund open source work. Opportunities are available for everyone, all the way from students looking to learn to career scientists looking to fund dedicated open source time. Below are our major developer programs with more information on how to get involved.
The SciML organization is a partner organization for Google Summer of Code under the NumFOCUS umbrella. In this summer program, students are paid to work on various SciML open source software repositories. Each of the students are paired with a team of mentors to teaching them various aspects of computatinoal science, from numerical differential equations and scientific machine learning, to parallel and symbolic-numeric computing.
To get started, take a look at the project lists and contact one of the mentors associated with the project.
The SciML organization partners with the MLH Fellowship to sponsor students over the summer for open source development. Check out the MLH Fellowship website for more information on getting involved.
Semi-quarterly NumFOCUS puts out a call for small development grants. The SciML organization puts out a call for proposals from the community for grant proposals. There are no restrictions on what the funding can be used for. Code development, documentation work, educational, sustainability, and diversity initiatives, or other types of projects are all eligible. Since only one application can be put in for the Julia project, an internal selection process is used to determine which proposals will be submitted to NumFOCUS. For examples of grants that were funded in the first round, previous awards.
Up to USD 3,000 is available per proposal. The total allocated funding from NumFOCUS was USD 20,000 in previous cycles, meaning that not every project will be able to receive a grant. This total amount is adjusted depending on the number and quality of proposals this may be adjusted up or down.
