Grad Slam

January 9, 2018 — Registration is open until January 19 for the UC Davis Grad Slam contest, in which graduate students compete to inform and entertain a general audience with three-minute talks based on their own research. The first place winner receives $1,000 and will compete for the grand prize of $5,000 at the UC Grad Slam final contest.

More than 85 master’s and Ph.D. students registered for the 2017 UC Davis Grad Slam Qualifying Round, in disciplines ranging from hard sciences to humanities. This year, Graduate Studies hopes to register at least one representative from each of the 99 graduate programs at UC Davis.

The Grad Slam Qualifying Round will take place on Feb. 8, 2018. To register for Grad Slam and find resources for preparing a presentation, please visit Graduate Studies online.
