What is CUWiP?

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

These conferences are supported in part by the National Science Foundation (PHY-1346627) and by the Department of Energy Office of Science (DE-SC0011076).  Further details are available on the APS conference website.
