UW 3MT®—organized by Core Programs in The Graduate School and UW Libraries Research Commons—is a professional development competition that celebrates the exciting capstone and research experiences of Master’s and Doctoral students at the University of Washington. The competition supports graduate students’ capacity to effectively explain their research or capstone project in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a public audience. Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic research communication competition originally developed by the University of Queensland, Australia.
