You might consider making contacts by leveraging NASA’s Space Grant Network. It is quite large and typically connected with big universities across the USA.
Here is a Link: https://www.nasa.gov/offices/education/programs/national/spacegrant/about/index.html
From that web site: "The Space Grant national network includes over 850 affiliates from universities, colleges, industry, museums, science centers, and state and local agencies. These affiliates belong to one of 52 consortia in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
I know that University of Minnesota is a part of NASA’s Space Grant Network. They have an active group of students that are pursing science with Rocketry and HAB.

So a colleague here at Cornell is entering his PHD program in
Atmospheric Sciences, and is quite interested in balloons. He may well
do a thesis using superpressure balloons. Anyway, he is also working
with his professor, and interested in kicking off a student project team
to do HAB related projects. At Cornell, we have a TON of project teams
that compete with other universities. We have autonomous vehicles,
drones, submarines, rocket teams, just to name a few engineering related
ones. Anyway, it looks like he may create a "Balloon Team". The
problem is, we're not aware of any other Universities doing a similar
thing. Does anyone know of other schools doing such stuff? Competition
leads to innovation!!!! :-)
