Can anyone who has been through this process shed some light on the timeline for applying to this fellowship? Have the applications for the school year starting Fall 2011 already closed? The fellowship's website is a bit confusing; my sense from it is that one applies for the fellowship in August-September for the year in which one is beginning a doctoral program. Is this correct? I'm beginning my PhD in the fall, so do I apply in the summer?

Thanks!

Last year's deadline was around the end of September, so you should start asking for letters of recommendation at the beginning of summer. Also, it's good to start your statement of purpose as soon as you can so that you are able to have professors/friends/random strangers read it and give you feedback. Also, order transcripts ASAP, unless you're waiting for spring grades. The sooner you start, the less you'll have to worry about in September.

Yes, the application deadline for Fall 2011 funding has already closed. If you apply this September that would be for funding starting in Fall 2012, so you apply about a year before funding would actually be provided.
