Sixteen participants in the Vice President for Research’s 3 Minute Challenge were selected to become the next cohort in the VPR Graduate Fellows Program at Colorado State University. In addition to receiving $4,000 for travel and research expenses, the new fellows will also engage in professional development workshops along with leadership and mentorship opportunities throughout the 2020-21 academic year.
Fellows were selected based on their performance in the 3 Minute Challenge on Feb. 10, where participants relayed the science, relevance and potential applications of their research — in only three minutes.
While 31 graduate students from seven of CSU’s eight colleges presented, judges were tasked with selecting 16 winners based on effective communication, content, and the overall engagingness of presentations.
