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.

"The two minute elevator pitches allowed me to hone my presentation skills. The panel discussion with the MIT admissions faculty gave me valuable insight into how I can make my application as competitive as possible. But most importantly, ACCESS solidified my decision that graduate school is the right next step for my future."
