You, apparently. Congratulations!

More seriously, I don't think there is going to be any organization on
our side, per se. Like every other year, scipy-relevant projects will
most likely be taken care of by the PSF acting as an umbrella
organization. People willing to mentor should contact the PSF
coordinator. By all means, use our mailing lists and Wiki to talk
about possible projects and connect students to mentors, but it's
mostly going to be up to the volunteer mentors to work with the PSF
and your students to get the project proposals submitted and selected.
