The Office of Graduate Studies and Research and the Graduate Student Association Present:

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition

Delaware State University will host its second virtual Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition on October 20, 2021. Graduate students will have the opportunity to persuasively present their thesis or dissertation topic to a university audience in less than three minutes, using a single PowerPoint slide. This is a unique opportunity for students to strengthen academic and presentation skills, while promoting cross-departmental connections and interdisciplinary work.

Monetary prizes are awarded to the winner, runner-up, and people’s choice recipient. This competition is open to those Master’s and Doctoral students.

Please note: Past winners are not eligible to compete in the Fall 2021 competition.

Last day to register for the competition is Friday, October 8, 2021.
(Your presentation and power point slide are due then.)


Questions should be forwarded to Mrs. Cheryl Still at cstill [at] desu.edu or Dr. Myna German and mgerman [at] desu.edu.
