Hi Mauricio,

we welcome you to apply for the projects that interest you.

Blender will have no idea how many student slots are available till awhile
after all student proposals have been submitted and evaluated.  Whether any
particular proposal will be accepted is a combination of mentoring capacity
(one mentor might have many qualified students who submit, but only have
time to mentor one or two), Googles allocation of student 'slots', the
students qualifications, and the absolute strength (Blender mentors will
never accept a bad proposal) and relative strength (only the best proposals
are selected) of the proposal.

So make the best proposal(s) that you can and we wish you luck.

We also recommend trying to build blender with your preferred tools and
platform and to submit a small feature patch or bug fix.  So that you are
confident that you can use our development tools (patch tracker and review,
git and version management, patch creation, etc.) and understand our

For the specific projects you are interested in, you can contact the
potential mentor for the project on irc or via email to discuss your
