This is a great idea. I think Google could definitely be interested.

Kickstarted off the collection of projects and mentors at http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Google_Summer_of_Code_2006

Subject: [OSM-dev] Summer of Code?

Google seem to have anounced this year's summer of code (where they pay 
students to write open source code, under the supervision of mentors from 
those projects). Full details for mentors and mentoring organisations are 
here:
     http://code.google.com/soc/mentorfaq.html

Would it be worth OSM signing up to be a mentoring organisation, and 
suggesting a few projects?

(If we do go ahead, we'd need to suggest some summer sized projects, and 
have some people volunteer to mentor the students. We'd also get $500 / 
student that gets accepted by google, which could help with hosting / 
machines)
