Grad Slam 2023

Grad Slam is a UC Santa Cruz Graduate Division-hosted competition that is open to all graduate students, except those who have won 1st, 2nd, or the people’s choice in a previous Grad Slam. Participants have a maximum of three minutes to explain their graduate research or artistic endeavor to a general audience.

The Baskin Engineering Preliminary Round is on Tuesday, February 14 at 7 p.m. Each graduate student that participates in this round will receive a $50 e-gift certificate to a UCSC-participating vendor. The top two presenters will be awarded $500 each and will move onto the final round scheduled for March 4th, where they will compete against the other finalists from each UCSC division. Register to participate in the Engineering preliminary round.
