What do you mean you don't have the resources to work on a project that
interests you?  You say that you are an undergraduate student.  Go to
one of your professors and ask him or her if you could do a research
project in his/her lab.  Can't think of anything more impressive on an
undergrads resume than a publication with his/her name as one of the
authors.
