Due to the shortened winter quarter and the timing of mid-term exams, we are extending the registration deadline for the 2018 Grad Slam competition a second and final time! Be sure to sign up by THIS FRIDAY, February 23 to take part in this exciting annual event.

What is Grad Slam?

UCSB Grad Slam is an award-winning campus-wide competition for the best three-minute talk by a graduate student. The 2018 competition will take place April 9-20.

Why should I compete?

For fortune and fame, of course! Oh, and the swag. Each competitor will receive a free Grad Slam mug and tote bag. Grad Slam is also a great chance to hone your presentation skills, publicize your research, and meet other cool graduate students doing interesting work.

And did we mention the chance to win thousands of dollars? This year, we're giving away over $15,000 in cash and prizes, including a grand prize of $5,000. Plus, the winner will get to compete in the UC-wide Grad Slam competition for a chance to win even more money!

So what are you waiting for? Sign up today! The ​final deadline to register is FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23.
