Thirteen 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 during the 2021-22 academic year.

Fellows were selected based on their presentations for the 3 Minute Challenge. Although the live virtual event planned for Feb. 15 was canceled due to a university weather closure, participants were able to record and relay the relevance and potential applications of their research and scholarship to a panel of six judges.

Judges selected the 13 winners from 35 graduate students from seven of CSU’s eight colleges who presented, based on effective communication and content of presentations.
