The theme for this year’s competition is Impact. As graduate and professional students, you are contributing to significant innovations within your respective fields and disciplines, within your communities and across local and international levels. Whether you have developed a new way of approaching a problem, unearthed an important part of history that needs to be told or created a solution or technology to address a pressing contemporary issue — we want to hear in your proposal how your thesis, capstone, or research project has potential or demonstrated impact!

Participating in 3MT is a great opportunity to:

  • Learn to talk about your research without using jargon
  • Prepare for job interviews. One UW 3MT winner shared that her three minute talk was useful for answering job interview questions!
  • Practice your public speaking skills
  • Build your network and your resume
  • Receive practice session feedback from Core Programs and UW Libraries staff in a friendly and positive environment
  • Compete for cash prizes!

3MT is 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 consider Scholars’ Studio events to present your work.

For more information, please visit the UW 3MT website or send questions to uw3mt@uw.edu.
