The Graduate College presents the

Three-Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition

3 - 6 p.m. Monday, November 6, 2017
Second Floor Pearson Hall

3MT® is an oral presentation of a student’s research to an audience of non-experts in the discipline.  Presentation time is strictly restricted to three minutes, and only one visual image (slide) with no animation is permitted. A panel of judges will determine winners.  The idea was launched at the University of Queensland in 2008.  Since then, 3MT® competitions have been held at numerous institutions in 19 countries.  More detail on 3MT® is available at threeminutethesis.org.  

The winner of our competition will be funded to represent Iowa State University at a regional competition in Grand Rapids, Michigan on April 6, 2017.  Awards will be $500 for the winner, $250 for honorable mention, and $250 for People’s Choice.

Both master’s and doctoral students may compete.  Competitors will need to be registered as graduate students during both fall semester 2017 and spring semester 2018. If more students apply than we can accommodate to compete, the Graduate College will select the competitors and invite those not selected to compete in the 3MT® competition during the GPSS research conference in April 2018.

Process:

October 4, 2017:  Deadline for application to 3MT® competition

October 9, 2017:  Applicants will be notified regarding their selection for the 3MT competition

October 12 and 16, 2017: Informational meetings (pizza provided) for contestants
