grad student funding

I teach at a small campus within the Texas A&M system and have come up 
against a funding problem.  We are expected to recruit graduate students 
(Master's level) and we have no money for research supplies for the 
student's research nor money to pay for a research assistanceship.  The 
only source of funding is to provide a teaching assistantship for ten hours a 
week at minimum wage.  This comes out to about $180.00 a month, not 
much.  Where do others in a similar situation come up with money?  I 
currently have a student wanting to do Molecular research and am being 
pressured to take her on since I haven't had a graduate student, yet.

Suggestions would be appreciated.
