The California State University Grad Slam showcases and celebrates a wide array of excellent research and creative activity that takes place at the graduate level across the CSU. Participating CSU campuses nominate two graduate students to compete for a change to win cash prizes and bragging rights. During the competition, participants are allowed 3 minutes and one PowerPoint slide to present their research to a non-expert audience.
