I've received a few mails from students asking about the status of their
applications, and whether the lack of public comments does indicate if they
have been rejected or are ineligible.
I'd like to reply as follows:
Number of projects
Currently, GIMP has been given five slots for students projects by Google. Six
of our mentors have found suitable projects among the proposals, and thus I
have asked Google for an additional slot.
All available slots have been distributed, however, so getting an additional
one does depend on other orgs donating slots back - and Google's preference is
to rather give organizations with less than five slots additional ones.
Assume that we get five slots and have selected five projects out of 43.
Status of applications
We didn't add many public comments to any proposal. The existence or lack of
public comments does not tell anything about the status, unless one of the
comments does mention it explicitly. All applications have been reviewed.
Yesterday, Martin has posted our current favorites.
We are currently waiting for the duplicate resolution meeting tomorrow on April
15 (this is where students applied to more than one organizations do get
assigned to one of them). After that, our favorites list should be mostly
Google will announce the official list of accepted students on April 20. Until
then, nothing is really fixed.
We've only had very few applications (6 out of 49) that were ineligible - some
because they did not contain anything we asked for in our application template,
and some because their topic was totally out of our scope.
