Graduate Application Resources for Prospective Students

Graduate Application Assistance Programs

MIT is committed to fostering a diverse student body and research workforce. At the forefront of this commitment is cultivating a diverse and competitive applicant pool for our graduate programs at MIT.

The Graduate Application Assistance Program (GAAP) is a student-led initiative designed to help prospective applicants, particularly those from identities historically underrepresented in graduate education, navigate the MIT Admissions process. 

  • Connect with a student mentor to receive advice on the MIT application process and feedback on application materials 
  • Learn more about student life at MIT, areas of study and resources that support student development

Please note: MIT’s Graduate Application Assistance Programs are volunteer-based and student-run. GAAPs operate independently of program admission committees and are not considered a component of the admissions process.
