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 idea of being in school until the greater part of one's 20s is daunting but interacting with the graduate students was reassuring that remaining in school is not a sacrifice of freedom nor a retardation of personal development. One learns an adroit balancing act of, more or less, self-regulated academic rigor and personal growth and exploration."
