New Undergrad Research Pitch Competition in March

The Office of Undergraduate Research is hosting the first Undergraduate Research Pitch Competition on March 10. Similar to TED talks or the 3-Minute Thesis, undergraduate researchers deliver a three-minute presentation during this formally judged event. The top presenter could be awarded up to $400 for their research pitch.

The process to determine the top 10 presenters will go through a judging and social media engagement process. The live event will have a judging panel and an "audience choice" selection.
