Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

What do you ASPIRE to be? 

Undergraduates interested in an in-depth summer research experience should consider the American Student Placements in Rehabilitation Engineering (ASPIRE) program at HERL. ASPIRE is a ten-week research program, sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF), that focuses on research in the rehabilitation engineering and assistive technology fields.  In addition to full participation in an on-going research project, students write a project paper, develop a poster, and compete in an elevator pitch competition.  The program concludes with Student Symposium where the winners of the best paper, poster, and elevator pitch are recognized.

ASPIRE participants receive a stipend, housing, and laboratory accommodations.  For more information, please visit our FAQ page.
