Research Presentation Awards

3MT (Three Minute Thesis)

Graduate students presenting original research at conferences or performing or displaying creative work are eligible to receive a Research Presentation Award (RPA) averaging $400. RPAs are intended to enable graduate students to travel to important conferences or events within their discipline in order to present their scholarly and creative work. Students participating in 3MT have three minutes to give a presentation based on their thesis.  Of course, three minutes is not enough time to present an entire thesis, so there is only time for the essentials. The competitor who wins first will receive $5,000, second place will receive $2,500, third place will receive $1,500, and the People’s choice will win $1,000.
