Runner up: $500

People's choice: $200 GSU Bitters gift card

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed in 2008 by The University of Queensland (UQ) in Australia. Research students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance. 3MT is not an exercise in trivialising or 'dumbing-down' research, but challenges students to consolidate their ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience.

The School of Graduate Studies will hold Memorial University's 3MT competition on Thursday, November 21, 2019, in the McCann Centre, ED 2030 B, from 2-4 pm.
