What is Grad Slam?
The Annual Grad Slam is a campus wide competition for the best 3-minute research talk aimed at a non-specialist audience. It's a fantastic opportunity for both undergraduate and graduate students to present their research in a professional and competitive setting.

Winners of the Grad Slam will receive cash prizes in the following amounts:
- $300 to each of the graduate STEM and Non-STEM winners
