Empower Your Pitch - the power of effective research communication. Register now.

Open to all doctoral students at JHU, Empower Your Pitch – a modified version of the 3 Minute Thesis competition – is a research competition that develops the research communication skills of presenters from across the Hopkins’ graduate schools to diverse audiences.

The competition empowers presenters to communicate the value of their research at any stage of development and across all disciplines – including STEMM, Humanities, Education, and Social Sciences – in a maximum time frame of three minutes.

Participants may craft presentations that include varied elements, including traditional spoken word presentations, music, poetry, rap, electronic media, and props! The goal of these strategies is to capture the audience’s attention, convey the essence of their research, and explain its relevance to their listeners.
