UCSC Grad Slam

6:30 PM
All Ages
Presented by UCSC Division of Graduate Studies. Masks are welcomed. The bar & café will be open.

Grad Slam is a communication contest hosted by the UC Santa Cruz Graduate Division that is open to all graduate students, except those who have won 1st place in a previous Grad Slam. Participants have a maximum of three minutes to explain their graduate research or artistic endeavor to a general audience.

Prizes are $3000 to the winner, $1500 to the runner-up, $750 to the people’s choice (the last decided by text message voting, one vote per audience member, both those in person and watching the live-stream).

Every UC holds a Grad Slam, and the ten UC Grad Slam champions compete in the UC Office of the President Grad Slam in early May (usually the morning of the first Friday of May) in San Francisco.
