I am in full support of this as well.  There have been a few people talking to me about such an idea and the opportunities for the future are only still beginning to crystalise in my mind.  The OSGeo Academic Consortium ... hmmm...   If all members were institutional in nature and were able to bring something to the table - ie. like CGS internship idea or staff time, then I think there'd be some easy opportunities to see some benefit.

Anyway, just a bit of brainstorming...
