Threesis applications — get yours today!


It’s the most wonderful time of the year — the Threesis Application Period!
For the uninitiated, the GSAS Threesis Academic Challenge is an annual event where MA students compete for cash prizes by giving three-minute “compelling orations” on their research, with only one slide for visuals.
The event happens in April. Top prize is $1000, second place and audience favorite each bag $750, and any Draper student who makes it to the final round gets $300 from us. And we have a pretty good track record, just saying.
The application itself can also be found on our forms page, or you can pick up a hard copy in the Draper office, by the coffeemaker.
Applications are due Friday, Februrary 6.
Get at it!
