Three Minute Thesis and Graduate Student Emergency Fund
Three Minute Thesis
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) celebrates the exciting research conducted by graduate students. Participants have just three minutes and one slide to present a compelling oration on their thesis or dissertation topic and its significance. The competition cultivates student's academic, presentation, and research communication skills, and helps graduate students to effectively explain their research in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
Graduate Student Emergency Fund
This specific fund provides financial assistance to graduate students who are in danger from withdrawing due to unanticipated, temporary financial hardships resulting, from emergency or crisis situations (e.g., accident, illness, the death of a family member). Graduate students can face unique challenges to finishing their degrees and these funds are awarded as grants to help alleviate short-term financial needs.
