Graduate Studies is thrilled to announce the top ten finalists for the 2021 Grad Slam competition at the University of California, Davis. At UC Grad Slam, master’s and doctoral students across UC campuses are challenged to share their research story, concisely and compellingly, in three minutes or less.
This year’s competition was unique in it was completely virtual. Over 25 master’s and doctoral students submitted videos about their research. Volunteer faculty and staff judges reviewed and scored the videos based on the participants presentation skills. The top ten scores were selected and will move forward to the campus final round on April 8.
These top 10 finalists will present their research to a new panel of external judges and an external audience for a chance to win $2,500! The champion of the UC Davis Grad Slam competition will go on to compete with winners from other campuses at the UC Grad Slam annual competition held in May.
