Registration open for UNC's Three Minute Thesis competition

Preliminary rounds will lead to the October 29 finals before judges and public audience — all highlighting graduate student research at Carolina.

Currently enrolled master’s and doctoral students at UNC-Chapel Hill are invited to register for the upcoming Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition – culminating in a final round in which 10 students share their research, in three minutes, in front of a public audience and panel of judges.

Participants must be from an academic discipline administered by The Graduate School. The final round, to be held at Bondurant G100, will take place at 4 p.m. Oct. 29.

The first-place winner receives $1,000 and a trip to compete in the regional 3MT competition in March 2020. The second-place winner receives $600; and a People’s Choice winner, who is determined by the audience, receives $400.

There is an Information session at the Graduate Student Center, 211A West Cameron Avenue, on October 10 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., during which graduate students will learn more about the competition, including how to create an effective presentation for the preliminary rounds.

Registration is open until October 16.
