Whether you're networking, interviewing for a job, or just having a conversation at a party, it is essential to have an "elevator pitch" to describe your dissertation work. 3MT is a competition that helps graduate students develop the necessary communication skills to effectively explain their research in a clear and succinct way so that all people, from field-specialist to the lay-person, can understand the topic and importance of their work. Plus, it comes with the opportunity to win up to $1,000!
