students submit proposals themselves and anyone is allowed to do so. Afaik the
process is as follows: google decides how many students will be supported to
work for boost projects based on the number of proposals we get, so the more
proposals we get the better. After the deadline, mentors rate the proposals
and choose students, at most one for each project.

This is how I understood things from when I was a GSoC student in 2011 -
please correct me if I got it wrong, Boris.
