Call for Proposals: UW Three Minute Thesis

Posted: 2/26/2018 (Conference)

Are you a UW graduate student in the final stages of your capstone, thesis or dissertation project? Does your work engage frameworks, methods or theories from multiple disciplines in order to address complex challenges in the world? Join us for the opportunity to compete in a fast-paced presentation for cash prizes totaling $5,000. The 2018 UW Three Minute Thesis (UW 3MT®) Competition is open to all eligible graduate students from Bothell, Tacoma, and Seattle campuses.This competition will feature graduate students engaged in interdisciplinary research. We have chosen to feature interdisciplinary research as this work is increasingly important due to the need to explore and address complex societal problems that cannot be resolved with a single discipline. Interdisciplinary research can take many forms. In our review of submissions we will prioritize applications that describe the clear integration of information, methodologies, and/or theories from two or more disciplines to advance understanding or solve problems.

3MT competitions are intended for graduate students who are ready to present their capstone, thesis, or dissertation work, rather than for works-in-progress. If you are at an earlier stage with your research, we encourage you to seek out Scholars’ Studio events to present your work.
