Whether you're networking, interviewing for a job, or just having a conversation at a party, it is essential to have an "elevator pitch" to describe your dissertation work. Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is a competition that helps graduate students develop the necessary communication skills to effectively explain their research in a clear and succinct way so that all people, from field-specialist to the lay-person, can understand the topic and importance of their work. Plus, it comes with the opportunity to win up to $1,000! Click here for more information about 3MT at UVA.
By submitting your entry into the competition, you are entering the first round of judged heats to take place February 8-10th. Finalists will be selected from the first-round heats to compete in the UVa 3MT Live Final on Wednesday, March 1st at 3:00 pm. UVA doctoral students from all schools and departments who have passed their qualifying exams are eligible to enter the 3MT competition.
