You can add projects, but the students need to submit proposals now, I
guess in the next couple of days would be the last time to do so, after
that the students will stop looking for new projects.
Ofcourse, you can collect information as a Todo list or for the next

I assume there is some sort of a limit, there are about 80 organizations
that offer projects and about 400 to 500 positions for student projects.
So I expect to have about 6 projects.
I assume the limit will be imposed by Google to distribute projects
rather evenly among projects, assuming all will have qualified students
The project offers will need to be graded by the mentor(s), I'm not sure
about the process of this yet.
