It seems that in order to apply a submission to Gsoc, you dont need to
do It under owasp, but project based . You can define that you fall under
owasp as organization umbrella.

An organisation under gsoc does not have to be an existing org registered
but an open source project acting as a mentoring organisation

What are the eligibility requirements for a mentoring organisation? To be
eligible to participate as a mentoring organization, you must be a group
running an active free/open source software project, e.g. BRL-CAD
<http://brlcad.org/>*. The project does not need to be a legally
incorporated entity. Mentoring organizations *must have *already* produced
and released software under an Open Source Initiative approved license
<http://www.opensource.org/licenses> and have at least two contributors to
serve as organization administrators and/or mentors for the entire program
in order to participate in the program.

In addition, if owasp wants to have more chances to be selected, it needs
to work with enough anticipation on the project ideas page and at
recruiting students all year long before even the deadline is announced

As an individual project, you as project leader can do so.


Your goal for GSoC is to generate a list of project ideas that capture the
development needs of your organization, attract the interest of students,
and help you get things done. This is often done as a community effort that
involves as many potential mentors as possible, helps create buy-in from
these mentors, and gives a broad range of perspectives on organizational
needs.* Creating your list of project ideas should also be part of an
ongoing long-term strategy, rather than a rushed act to meet the
application deadline. Many organizations maintain such project lists
