I think it does require having one or more mentors that work with the 
students.  Also, I remember some Python related open source projects 
working through the PSF to participate in GSoC, probably because of 
requirements of there being some sort of legal entity.  If it turns out 
there are mentors and this is needed, I could ask contacts I have at the 
PSF about it.  I'm a member there and have been active on the board in 
the past.
