Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Pitt Competition

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition celebrates the exciting research conducted by Pitt’s doctoral students.

Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), 3MT provides a public forum for doctoral students to demonstrate their academic, presentation, and research communication skills.

Winners of the school and online competitions will compete to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.

Prizes for the Pitt 3MT Competition include:

  • First place prize: $1,000 travel grant
  • Two runner-up prizes: $500 travel grant each
  • People’s Choice prize: $1,000 travel grant — NEW to the 2019 competition

Audience members are welcome to cheer on the competitors and to vote in the People's Choice Award.

This event is sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the University Center for Teaching and Learning, and the University Library System.
