Event description

Description

The LSU Graduate School will host the 2017-18 Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Finals Competition, a research competition that challenges master’s and doctoral students to present a compelling oration on their thesis topic and its significance in just three minutes. This exciting competition increases scholars’ capacity to effectively explain research in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. While an 80,000-word thesis would take nine hours to present, their time limit is three minutes with the use of one accompanying slide.

Nine finalists from various LSU units will compete for 1st Place to receive a $1,000 research travel award and a trip to compete in the Southern Regional Competition in February 2018. The 2nd Place winner will receive a $750 research travel award.

Faculty, staff, students, and Baton Rouge community members are encouraged to come out to learn about the outstanding scholarship being conducted on campus, and to show support for the presenters. Audience members will also select a recipient for “People’s Choice,” a prize that grants a $500 research travel award.

The competition will take place on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at the LSU Digital Media Arts Theater. Refreshments will be served for you to enjoy prior to the presentations. Learn more about the competition!
