The CONVERGE mission is to increase the presence of underrepresented and underserved students in MIT’s graduate programs. To achieve this goal, CONVERGE hosts a four-day graduate school preview weekend on the MIT campus during the fall. Briefly, the program:

  • Selects participants who will be strong applicants to MIT graduate programs
  • Exposes selected students to MIT’s graduate programs, facilities, and campus life
  • Connects participants with MIT faculty, staff, and graduate students involved in the graduate school admissions process
  • Covers all expenses for the preview weekend
