Manu,

Here are a few more suggestions:

"For example, if this project only raises enough funding to hire one
student, instead of having two to three students  on the Web Payments
Project, we might have to reduce it one." --- Did you omit the Linked Data
Projects?

"The Linked Data technologies are being used by Google, Facebook,
Microsoft, and a number of other large companies to build out services like
Google's Knowledge Graph and Facebook's Open Graph." --- How does this
involve Microsoft? schema.org?

Suggestion from:
Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo Team Up to Advance Semantic Web, MIT

Change:

"There is also the possibility that a mentor will get sick or not be able
to participate as much as they would have wanted. We have at least 3
mentors per student, so the likelihood that all three mentors will not be
available at all times is fairly slim."


to something like:

"There is also the possibility that a mentor will get sick or not be able
to participate as much as they would have wanted. We have at least three
mentors per student, so the likelihood of a period when all mentors are
absent is fairly slim."
