Hi, Mark. That's a tall order, but Kingston makes 1 Gigabyte USB 2  
flash drives with hardware-based 256 AES encryption for under US$60.  
You can check them out at <http://www.kingston.com/flash/ 
dt_secure.asp>. Unfortunately, it's Windows-only.

If your users are on Macs, any old USB keychain can support a  
stretchable, 256 AES encrypted disk image. Simply create one using the  
included Disk Utility application on Mac OS X.  It's exceptionally  
simple, and Mac OS X provides a password strength-o-meter for the user  
(who can optionally store that password in her or his secure Keychain).
