Here's a list of some potential people to talk (professors and students) 
to for more information about programs and to help track down professors 
you might work with. You might also want to join the osgeo EDU committee 
mailing list where some of these people are involved.

Arizona - Luc Anselin
Penn State - Ian Turton
OSU - Bernhard Jenny, Dylan Keon
UC Santa Barbara- Michael Goodchild, Alan Glennon (Phd student under 
UC Davis - Robert Hijmans, Jim Quinn
Towson University, Maryland -Jay Morgan
Denver - Ben Tuttle, Eric Wolf
University of Wisconsin - Mark Harrower
University of Mass. Amherst - Charlie Schweik
Univ. North Carolina - Helena Mitasova
Harvard - http://geonode.org/2011/02/worldmap/
Stanford - Though I'm not sure who

I'm a little biased of course towards my program,
Jim Quinn is my advisor and I work closely with Robert Hijmans (author 
of the Raster package for R).

FYI, funding is whole different ball of wax that is often about finding 
a professor you want to work with that has an interesting project you 
want to work on.
