My college, Manipal Institute of technology, Manipal, India, has just recently become a part of the Sun academic Initiative, which has some perks.. Such an educational programme from Fedora would be more than a dream come true.. A lot of us go through books and material but teaching yourself is not as efficient as a mentor telling you what to do and helping you apply your knowledge practically.. Please give this programme thought.. A few hours a week will be enough from the mentors and there will be plenty of students who are interested and want to learn and contribute..

Having a mentor is a good idea. What is a first step is the Fedora 
Project folks fixing up the areas wherein it seems that a communication 
disjoint exists.

For example, in your case, what were the issues that you faced when you 
wanted to do a project for Fedora ?

ps: you would like to fix the word wrap on your mail client :)
