Grad Slam is a campus-wide competition that showcases and awards the best 3-minute research presentations by graduate students. The competition not only helps foster the important career development skill of articulating graduate research in an understandable and engaging way to those inside and outside the academic community, but it also highlights the excellence, importance and relevance of UCLA graduate students and their research.
Grad Slam will take place this year from April 11 – 25, 2017 with information sessions and prep workshops starting as early as February 22, 2017. First, second and third place winners in the UCLA competition will receive fellowships in the amounts of $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000 respectively. There will also be an Audience Choice award in the amount of $500. The campus winner will advance to a UC-wide competition that will be held in San Francisco on May 4, 2017.
