3MT Competition Info Session and Contest Timeline


3MT Info Session
Jan. 19 | 12-1 p.m.

WVU’s 3MT Competition is fast approaching! Learn why you should enter this resume-building contest at Grad Ed's next info session on Jan. 19 from 12-1 p.m. on Zoom. 

It will not only test your academic, presentation and research communication skills, but you have the opportunity to showcase your research to a wide variety of audiences - academic and non-academic.

What's the catch? You must present your research topic and its significance in three minutes, using just one slide.

Are you up for the challenge?

Register for the Jan. 19 Info Session.
