The Graduate School is hosting its inaugural Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT). These popular competitions have become a global phenomenon and offer graduate students the opportunity to communicate the significance of their research to a general audience, all in three minutes or less. 

Our final round will feature the top two finishers from each 3MT preliminary round. Winners will be announced during the Final on March 24, followed by a reception to celebrate all contestants. The winner of the Final Round will receive $1,000, with the runner-up and People’s Choice winner each receiving $500.

Come help us celebrate the exciting research being conducted by UMass Amherst graduate students.
