Grad Slam

Grad Slam registration is now open! Register to participate in the preliminary round! The first 30 graduate students to enter and complete their registration by uploading and sharing their presentation videos will receive $50 e-gift certificates to one of the vendors who offer these to UCSC! (E-gift certificate vendors include e-tailers, restaurants and coffee sellers, clothiers, movie theaters and ticket sellers, home supply stores, office supply stores, and cooking supply stores.) Deadline to enter is January 28, 2022, midnight Pacific Time.

Grad Slam, also known as the 3-Minute Thesis Challenge, gives graduate students three minutes to share their research, concisely and compellingly, with a public audience. (Three Minute Thesis, or 3MT®, is a registered trademark of The University of Queensland.)

Currently enrolled graduate students are eligible to participate, with the exception of previous winners (Grad Slam champion, runner-up, or people’s choice).
