COVID Disclaimer:

APS requires all conference attendees to be fully vaccinated prior to attending CUWiP. Attendees will be required to submit proof of vaccination prior to the conference.

IAEA has partnered with APS CUWiP and will host webinars featuring both IAEA and CUWiP talks on careers for women and gender minorities on physics topics, professional development, careers, and research. This will include highlights from the IAEA Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme.

If you are an international student, unvaccinated, do not wish to disclose your vaccination status, or you simply cannot make it to the in-person CUWiP, you may register now for Virtual CUWiP 2022 without submitting an application.

APS Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) are three-day regional conferences for undergraduate physics majors.

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.
