Who Should Apply?

  • Undergraduate students in their sophomore, junior or senior year, focusing on chemistry, chemical engineering, or materials science.
  • Students with a strong academic background and an interest in research
  • US citizens and permanent residents
  • Those willing to engage in ACCESS's interactive environment
  • Students with limited prior exposure to MIT's campus or its graduate community

Please note that while ACCESS highlights opportunities at MIT, participation neither obligates participants to apply nor guarantees future consideration for study at MIT graduate level programs.

"If a student has any curiosity about grad school, or wants more insight into the application process, the ACCESS program is a great way to gain that insight. It also introduces you to amazing new people that you may possibly know the rest of your life."
