Yes, although the choice will be made based on what the mentors for the
various projects tell us, not in a vacuum.

Applying for multiple projects does not by itself increase the chance of
being accepted.  The decisions are not made by random choice :).

What will increase a student's chance of being accepted is to show the
mentors for the project that they are familiar with the requirements,
can do the work, and deliver the results.  In other words, check out the
code, start trying to work with it, try to make a specific technical
plan for implementation and talk with the mentors about it, etc.
