The Graduate School will host Three Minute Thesis this spring, a competition showcasing graduate student research. Qualifying heats begin in late February and will culminate in a Final Round on March 16 (Wednesday) with a first prize of $1,000.
The goal of the 3MT competition is for Ph.D. students across all disciplines to explain their research, its breadth and significance, in a language appropriate to an audience of specialists and non-specialists alike, all within three minutes.
“The competition challenges participants to really polish an overview of their work, to distill its essentials, and to dynamically present it,” said Lisa Michaels, program manager for 3MT Notre Dame and Graduate Career counselor. “Fundamentally, 3MT is about communication and inspiration.”
