[CUWiP] is an empowering experience, to say the least, and I hope that everyone, no matter their involvement in physics, or even the sciences, can experience such a fulfilling conference at some point in their lives.

Support for the Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics has been provided by the host institutions, the National Science Foundation, and the Office of Science in the Department of Energy.The Yale University Physics Department is spearheading a separate fund drive to support the Northeastern CUWiP and summer research by a female Yale undergraduate in the physical sciences.
In 2012, APS became the institutional home for CUWiP. The CUWiP National Organizing Committee provides support for the organization of the annual conferences and works with APS. At each host institution, a local organizing committee plans and organizes the detailed program for the local conference and is responsible for local fundraising.
