I would double-check Benjamin can do this since I don't think he will be 18 by the time GSoC starts. The FAQ at http://socghop.appspot.com/document/show/program/google/gsoc2009/faqs#mentor_eligibility seems to suggest it won't be an issue, but you never know.

Also be aware that a university student might not like being told what to do by someone in high school (although if they want $4500 they better).
