The OSU Graduate School is inviting graduate students, including all Research Forum (poster and presentation) winners, to compete at the 3MT college level completion. The 3MT is an extension of the Hayes Research Forum, giving students an opportunity to build on the work they have already done by developing a 3-minute (or less) presentation of their research as they would to laypersons, as well as a single PowerPoint slide. For more information, please check out our website:

This year's 3MT competition is using a new process which will include a college-level review. Finalists will compete in a live event hosted by the Graduate School on February 8th, 2023, from 10:00AM to 11:30AM, University Hall, 2nd Floor, Conference Room 250Q.
