Information on CUWiP 2024

Providing Opportunity

The goal of APS CUWiP is to help undergraduate women continue in physics by providing them with the opportunity to experience a professional conference, information about graduate school and professions in physics, and access to other women in physics of all ages with whom they can share experiences, advice, and ideas. 

The national and local organizing committees of APS CUWiP strive to create a welcoming environment for all, including undergraduate women and gender minorities.

Application and Registration

CUWiP has become incredibly popular.  In order to maximize the number of CUWiP participants APS can accommodate, APS will allocate participants to sites based on travel logistics and site capacity.
