The event creator says
The UC San Diego Grad SLAM is a graduate student competitive speaking event that showcases graduate student research. It welcomes all faculty, staff, community members, and students, both undergraduate and graduate, who have an interest in research and higher education to attend. This event is hosted by UC San Diego's Grad Division, in collaboration with The Center for Student Involvement and One-Button Studio.

Grad SLAM participants present their research using three PowerPoint slides in a three-minute “TED-like talk” that can be understood by a general audience. Presenters will compete in successive rounds and receive prizes ranging from $100.00-$2,500.00. This year the top winner will have the opportunity to compete in the first-ever UC system-wide Grad SLAM competition in Northern California. The goal of this event is to share with the campus community the tremendous quality of the graduate research at UC San Diego and offers an opportunity for graduate students to develop oratorical skill, a dynamic delivery, and compelling content when presenting their academic research.

Participants will be randomly assigned to preliminary rounds where two students from each preliminary round will be chosen to move forward to semi finals. Approximately twenty students will compete in the semi-final rounds with the goal of choosing ten speakers to go on to the Grad SLAM finals.
