GSoC looks like this:

1. Students submit proposals to Google based off of the instructions

2. We the Boost community peer review the proposals and rank order

3. Google reviews the proposals and our rank ordering and peer review

4. Google chooses which proposals they wish to fund. They usually
resemble our rank ordering, but not always. The number of proposals
they choose to fund is not known by us beforehand.

For reference, 2006-2011 had ten slots. 2013 had seven slots. I
personally would expect seven or less in 2014 as Google are
increasing the number of open source projects, but allocating fewer
slots to each.
