Grad Students: Do you want to give people an insightful look at your groundbreaking research, and have a chance to win cash prizes? If yes, you do not want to miss this opportunity!

“The 3MT is a perfect opportunity to witness a ‘light bulb’ moment – when someone hearing you talk about your research really gets it and experiences your passion. 3MT will allow you to develop the skills to illuminate everyone who takes the time to listen to your story!” says Acting Dean of Graduate Studies, Louise Simard.

The skills you will develop while competing in 3MT will come in handy when sharing your work with fellow researchers, or applying for grants. The better you are at simply, concisely and persuasively sharing your research, the better.

You can apply online on the 3MT® website. You will need to fill out an application, as well as upload a 30-second video.

Once selected, challengers are assigned to one of the heats on February 24, 25 or 27. The top 3 challengers from each heat chosen by the judging panel will receive $200 U of M Bookstore gift cards. Finalists from the heats along with wildcard selections from the heats, will compete on March 24.  Winners will be chosen by a panel of judges, and the audience will vote for the People’s Choice winner. Prizes for the final competition can be found here.

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is open to all University of Manitoba graduate students in thesis-based programs. Each challenger has three minutes―using only a single static slide as an illustration―to clearly explain the nature, goals and significance of their research.

The deadline to apply for the 2020 3MT Thesis Competition is January 15. All applications received by January 15th that meet the criteria will be entered in a draw for a $50 U of M Bookstore gift card. Rules and eligibility can be found here.

Apply now!
