APS Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics at UC Santa Cruz

January 20–22, 2023

About CUWiP

The APS Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) are three-day regional conferences held in many locations across the nation, bringing together undergraduate women and gender minorities with interests in physics. We look to provide participants opportunities to learn about graduate school and career opportunities in physics, to give them access to other women in physics of all ages, and give them the experience of a professional conference.

Attendees are not expected to pay out of pocket for accommodations associated with this conference. Travel and accommodations can be made to fit any and all needs. For more info, see our Reimbursements page.
