Free and open to the public

Grad Slam is a campus-wide competition for the best 3-minute graduate student presentation of a research or creative project. It is an excellent opportunity for students to enhance their communication skills and is an effective way of showcasing to the campus community and the public the innovative research and creative work associated with graduate education at the University of Arizona.

The Grad Slam Zoom Presenter Final Round features the top six students from the Zoom preliminary rounds. These students were selected based on their exemplary skills for presenting their work to a non-specialist audience. They will compete for the Grand Prizes sponsored by the Graduate and Professional Student Council. This year's finalists are listed below along with their program.

The official awarding of prizes will take place as part of the April 11 in-person competition finals and award ceremony.
