Dear Colleague,

I would like to tell you about a unique opportunity for your students. RE@CSU or Rehabilitation Engineering at Cleveland State University is a 10-week summer program funded by the National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program. This program immerses undergraduate students in research projects that aim to improve the lives of people with movement disabilities. We are looking for bright students majoring in or planning to major in engineering, computer science, math, or physics to come to Cleveland this summer and participate in our program. We especially encourage students with physical disabilities to participate in our program.

Can you pass along the following call for applicants to your students with disabilities?  It would be especially helpful if you reach out to specific students who might be most interested.

We also encourage your organization to follow us on Twitter @CSU_CHMS for more updates.

Thanks,

Eric Schearer

A Summer Research Experience

for Undergraduates

May 30-August 4, 2023

If you are an undergraduate student interested in creating and using technology to transform the lives of people with disabilities, this program is for you. This is an opportunity to explore a career path that is meaningful and significant and touches lives. We are looking for students at all undergraduate levels majoring in engineering, computer science, or a related area.  We especially encourage students with disabilities and students from underrepresented minority groups to apply.

You will be immersed in a community of undergraduate researchers, graduate students, engineering mentors, health care professionals, and, most importantly, people with disabilities. Together you will work on research projects to restore movement to people with paralyzed arms, develop new prosthetic legs, help improve balance in older adults, and explore the mechanics of injured joints. For ten weeks during the summer you will live at Cleveland State University and work in research labs at CSU and in hospitals in Cleveland.

Benefits include:

  • personal interaction with people with disabilities
  • participation in cutting-edge rehabilitation research
  • membership in a supporting research community
  • one on one mentoring
  • help preparing for graduate school applications or a job search
  • opportunity to travel to and present your research at an academic conference
  • $6000 stipend
  • free room and meal plan
  • free travel to and from Cleveland
