Environmental Grad Blitz


The Institute of the Environment now supports the UA Grad Slam.

Your talk could be worth $1,000 per minute

We encourage environmental research students to participate in the UA Grad Slam, a campus-wide competition for the best three-minute talk about graduate student research and discovery. IE and the Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice support awards of up to $1,000 each for best environmental talk and best environmental/social justice talk, respectively.

The first of its kind on campus, the Grad Blitz brought together graduate students working on environment-related research and arts to showcase their research findings and creative works. The event provided a special opportunity for students to share their work with students, faculty, university administrators, and others. Blitz participants presented their results in one of two ways: a five-minute speed talk or creative presentation with no more than three slides, or a traditional research poster or visual art or creative work. IE awarded $200 to the best presentation and best poster in both the research and creative categories, and $100 to the honorable mention in each format.
