There's the kicker -- I believe (and I haven't been heavily involved in 
this, so correct me if I'm wrong) the due date for applications is this 
Friday.  I don't have time to do that either.  MPL tagged along with the 
PSF last year and it worked great (very low administrative overhead for 
us mentors), until it fell through for unrelated reasons.

Cheers,
Mike
