What Is Grad Slam?
UC Grad Slam is an annual contest in which master’s and Ph.D. students across UC campuses – in disciplines ranging from hard sciences to humanities – compete to sum up their research for a general audience. Students should present the significance and fundamental points of their work at UC Davis in a clear, direct, and interesting manner.
Presentations should be no longer than three minutes in length and prepared for a diverse audience comprised of students, faculty, and community members. Judges will strongly consider clarity and effectiveness of the presentation by a general university audience.
This year's UC Davis champion, Tooka Zokaie, will compete against each other at the UC Grad Slam Final Round at LinkedIn HQ on May 3.
A live stream will be available on the UC Grad Slam website starting at 10:30 am on Thursday, May 3.

(Voting for the UC Grad Slam people's choice competition will be open for a brief window after the conclusion of the presentations.)
