The conferences will offer inspirational talks by women in physics, student poster or presentation sessions, workshops, and panel discussions on topics such as summer research, grad school, physics careers, and professional development, as well as opportunities for networking and informal mentoring.

CUWiP Sites

We strongly encourage students to apply to attend the site to which they will be geographically closest during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend in 2020. Please review the map below to determine the appropriate site to apply to. In some cases, you may be reassigned to attend either (a) the geographically closest site or (b) the next geographically closest site due to oversubscription at the closest site. Reassignments are made to maximize the total number of participants who can attend; we appreciate your patience with us as we try to accept as many applicants as possible.
