If we assume similar timeline as in 2019, then GSoC will announce
participating organizations near end of February 2020.
Students application period will take place in March/April.
Meanwhile, I recommend you to become familiar with GSoC
materials at https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/
especially resources at https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/help/
Regarding Boost specific materials for GSoC, go to the Wiki
https://github.com/boostorg/boost/wiki and read through articles linked
in the section "Google Summer of Code" from the right-hand side frame,
especially these two
Reading through previous proposals should be helpful too

Regarding Boost.GIL specifically, you will need to become familiar

Then, following the CONTRIBUTING.md, try to configure your
development environment of choice in order to build and run
GIL tests and examples.
Start from there.
If you get stuck or have questions, ask questions.
(Please, don't expect babysitting, do homework first: search, read,
try, then ask.)
