About the 3MT
The 3MT is a celebration of graduate student research that challenges grad students to communicate the key concepts of their research in a compelling presentation of three minutes or less. A panel of judges evaluates each of the presentations. The Carleton 3MT began in 2013 and has grown in popularity every year.
Participation in the 3MT can be tremendously enriching, both academically and personally. Former participants report that competing in the 3MT helped to build confidence and enhance their academic, presentation, and communication skills. Participants have also enjoyed great research exposure within Carleton, to other departments, and even in media. 3MT participants have been featured in Carleton news stories, departmental websites, YouTube, CBC Radio, and the Ottawa Citizen.
Cash prizes are awarded to the contestants who place 1st ($1000), 2nd ($500), and 3rd ($250) in the finals. The People’s Choice winner receives $250. The 1st place winner will also receive an expenses-paid trip to compete in the 3MT provincial competition.
