Jake et al.
These are good suggestions. Harvard's Proton Center at Mass General
is a little closer to home (I assume that you are in Cambridge). They
probably have multiple beam lines, with one reserved for research. Why
not give them a call:

In the MIT vicinity, UMass/Lowell has a Van de Graaff capable of
generating 2 MeV protons. See the physics department website.
If you need higher than 2 MeV protons, Brookhaven Lab has a serious
Tandem Van de Graaff, and also a 200 MeV proton linac that injects into the
Alternating Gradient Synchrotron. See their website. I remember the Van de
Graaff people at BNL doing circuit irradiation studies.
Nowadays there are medical proton therapy accelerators around more
than before. You might look for them also. Last I heard, Yale and SUNY/Stony
Brook still had serious Van de Graaff accelerators also.
UMass/Lowell is set up to accept customers from outside the Lowell
