UC Grad Slam is an annual contest in which master’s and Ph.D. students across UC campuses – in disciplines ranging from hard sciences to humanities – compete to sum up their research for a general audience. Students should present the significance and fundamental points of their work at UC Davis in a clear, direct, and interesting manner.
Presentations should be no longer than three minutes in length and prepared for a diverse audience comprised of students, faculty, and community members. Judges will strongly consider clarity and effectiveness of the presentation by a general university audience.
The application for Grad Slam 2017 is now open. Enter to participate by January 27 at gradstudies.ucdavis.edu/gradslam.
First Place: $1,000
Second Place: $500
Third Place: $250
The first place winner at the campus level will have the opportunity to compete for the grand prize of $5,000 at the UC Grad Slam final contest.
