Applicants shall be required to be high school graduates during the current academic year and be members of a minority group that is under-represented in chemical engineering, i.e., African-American, Hispanic, Native American, Alaskan Native, Pacific Islander.

Applicants must plan to enroll during the current academic year in a four-year college or university offering a science/engineering degree. Students are encouraged to choose classes leading to a degree in chemical engineering.
