Arts & Sciences 3 Minute Thesis Competition

Spark Atrium

About the event

The 3MT research communication competition challenges PhD students to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance in just three minutes—and using just one visual slide—in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.

The College of Arts & Sciences Pullman winner of 2020 will receive a $1,000 fellowship for fall 2020 and advance to the WSU 3MT Competition. The CAS Pullman 3MT runner up and people’s choice of 2020 will each receive a $500 fellowship for fall 2020. Join us for fast, fun learning in the Spark Atrium.

3MT is not an exercise in trivializing or “dumbing down” research, but an opportunity for students to consolidate their ideas, their motivation and their research discoveries so they can be presented to a wider audience.
