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 believe the program helped me address many of the lingering questions I had about graduate school, but knew not who to ask. It also offered me a glimpse into not only the graduate school admissions process, but also the daily life of graduate students whose enthusiasm towards scientific research was surprisingly infectious."
