The CONVERGE program is suspended in fall 2014 due to staffing changes. CONVERGE will return in 2015. If you are interested in applying to MIT this fall, we would still like to hear from you.  Please e-mail us at

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
