“USD students are participating in an international program when they choose to compete in 3MT,” said Brittany Wagner, director of Graduate Education. “The 3MT competition is held at over 900 universities in over 85 countries. I would put our participants up against any competitors across the globe, and they would hold their own. This competition showcases the incredible things our students are doing at USD to the world.”

The USD 3MT competition is hosted by the Graduate School and celebrates research being done by students at USD. The competition provides graduate students with an opportunity to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance to a non-specialist audience in just three minutes.

The first-place presentation will receive $350 and advancement to the Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools (MAGS) Regional 3MT Competition scheduled for April 3-5, 2024, in St. Louis, Missouri. The second-place student will be awarded $250, and the third-place student will be awarded $150.

Both the preliminary and final competition rounds are free and open to the public. The rounds will also be livestreamed from the USD Graduate School Facebook page.
