Sunscreen Testing at University?

Hello all, 

I'm looking to have a sunscreen tested in the comping months and have found the costs quite prohibitive (what can you expect though it's FDA regulated!!)

Anyways, I'm trying to get creative and find alternative resources.. for instance I was wondering if anyone knows of a University laboratory stateside or abroad that could do these services more cheaply as to gain experience. Maybe it's a pipe dream. 

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    IF there is any U.S. university that conducts SPF testing, it would be one of the few that developed cosmetic science programs:  Farleigh Dickenson in NJ, University of Cincinnati in OH, or University of Southern Mississippi in MS.
