DOW-MIT ACCESS 2014 Program

We are writing to ask for your help in spreading the word about an exciting program hosted by the Departments of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering at MIT. The DOW-MIT ACCESS Program is a weekend-long symposium aimed to expose underrepresented minority students to the benefits of a graduate education in the aforementioned research areas. This 6th annual event, taking place on MIT’s campus October 24th and October 25th, is an interactive and informative symposium that has proven to have a lasting impact on its past participants.

Over half of our ACCESS alumni are now enrolled in graduate programs across the country. We hope you will encourage your students to apply to this program as we continue to work toward increasing the number of under-represented minorities in the fields of chemistry, chemical engineering and materials science.

Applications for the ACCESS Fall 2014 session are due July 15, 2014. All travel expenses, meals and hotel accommodations for students selected to participate in the ACCESS program will be paid by us. Participation neither obligates the student to apply for graduate study nor guarantees future consideration for study at MIT. ACCESS was made possible through the generous support of Dow Chemical Corporation. For more information visit or email

Please forward and post this linked announcement and poster to your colleagues and students:
