The Outreachy website says:

  Future internship rounds will be May 2021 (initial applications open
  in late January 2021) and December 2021 (initial applications open in
  late August 2021).

There are usually two rounds each year.

There could be only after representatives of the Hurd community contact
the Outreachy organization to ask to participate in the next rounds.
That’s a precondition.

With Outreachy the mentor is the person who submits the project
proposal.  With GSoC the mentor/project association is less rigid.

There isn’t much you can do about it, so it shouldn’t seem difficult to
you :)  Once the Hurd community participates in Outreachy there may be an
opportunity for you to have an internship, but in my uneducated opinion
the community currently isn’t robust enough to divert time for

Here’s another idea: there has been some recent overlap between Guix and
the Hurd.  The Guix community does participate in Outreachy and will in
all likelihood do so again in the forseeable future.  Perhaps there is a
way to frame your project idea such that it could be beneficial to Guix
and thus would work fine as an Outreachy internship with the Guix
