The Application for the 2014 GSAS Threesis Academic Challenge is Open!
 
All GSAS Master’s Students are invited to apply for participation in the 2014 GSAS Threesis Academic Challenge. In three minutes or less and with the help of one slide, participants are challenged to discuss the work of their research in language accessible to a non-expert. This fun and exciting academic competition spotlights the spectacular scholarship of master’s students in a supportive interdisciplinary environment. All master’s students at GSAS are encouraged to participate. Whether you are working on a thesis, capstone, final project, creative project, laboratory research, or are engaged in another form of graduate-level research, you are invited to join this engaging event.
 
Threesis competitors participate in one mentoring session before the qualifying rounds on Friday, April 11, 2014. Once in the competitive rounds, students present their work to a panel of three faculty judges in hopes of being named one of the twelve 2014 Threesis Finalists. The finalists take the stage at the Kimmel Center on Saturday, April 12, 2014 to compete for the top three spots and cash prizes. The judges award the first place Threesis prize of $1,000; a second place prize of $750; and the audience awards the Audience Choice prize of $750.
 
Before you can win, you have to apply. 
Submit your completed application by email to gsas.threesis@nyu.edu . The deadline for Threesis applications is January 31, 2014.
