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.

"I really had no idea what grad school was all about, and thought of myself as somehow inadequate when it came to the next level of learning. Those thoughts were squashed after being in the ACCESS program. I am now looking into going grad school and pursuing my dream of always being a teacher."
