I'm an international student in the US (UT Arlington) and I someone suggested that I should get some research experience outside during the winter. Is it possible? I'll definitely try getting it at my university, but out of curiosity, is it possible to get some experience in other universities? If not, how else can I make productive use of my break? P.S. I don't wanna spend > $3000 just to go home and come back (that's a metric ton of money)!
