3MT-Three Minute Thesis Competition

Friday, November 17 at 1:30pm to 4:30pm

Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Crater Lakes Room
1395 University Street, Eugene, OR 97403

The Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) competition gives  graduate students no more than 3 minutes – and one slide – to present their research. This cultivates students’ capacity to effectively explain their research concisely in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. 

To participate, be ready to submit a title and a 150-word abstract describing your research. All competitors should use inclusive language that avoids stereotypes, labeling, and pejorative comments. Competitors can expect to receive a feedback package after the event containing a video clip of their presentation and the judges' scoresheet/comments.

First place wins $500; second place $300; third place $200  and the People’s Choice gets $100. The winner will qualify to participate at the regional competition at the Western Association of Graduate Schools Conference.
