The annual Threesis Academic Challenge is a development series and friendly competition designed to showcase the important scholarly work of GSAS master’s students. Over the course of the Spring semester, students work with mentors (past Threesis alumni, Bobst Subject Librarians, faculty, and more) to distill their graduate research into a 3 minute oral presentation, developed for a casual non-specialized audience. Students that complete all requirements and make it to the Final Round of the Threesis Academic Challenge have the opportunity to win cash prizes up to $1,250+.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE?
The Threesis Academic Challenge is open to all currently enrolled GSAS master’s and certificate students, as well as all GSAS master’s students that have graduated in December of that academic year. Students must present original research that is their own or was done in a group, however, only one person may present per presentation (group presentations are not permitted).
