Send Undergraduate Female Physics Majors to CUWiP
January 12-14, 2018, the University of Kansas Department of Physics & Astronomy will host a regional American Physical Society (APS) CUWiP meeting for undergraduate physics majors in the central region of the United States. Our region includes Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas.
The APS CUWiP is a series of regional conferences held simultaneously around the United States for undergraduate women interested in physics. The goal of this conference series is to encourage undergraduate women to pursue a career in physics by giving them the experience of a professional conference.
The CUWiP hosted by the KU Department of Physics & Astronomy will feature:
- Presentations by female physicists and educators in academia and industry
- A lively career panel
- Information about graduate school
- Laboratory tours
- A student poster session
- Opportunities to network with accomplished women in the field
In conjunction with the CUWiP, we are planning a one-day mini-conference for high school students interested in STEM. The mini-conference will take place on January 13 and will consist of some shared activities with the undergraduates as well as sessions specific to the concerns of high school students.
Support female physics students by making a gift of any size! Your support will provide materials, local transport, lodging and food for our participants during the CUWiP.
Supporters listed publicly on the donor wall will also be recognized on the conference website and in the conference program.

We are committed to hosting a conference that is an open, diverse, and inclusive environment. We believe that an array of values, interests, experiences, and intellectual and cultural viewpoints will enrich our participation in this event. We will not tolerate discrimination on the basis of race, sexuality, gender identity or expression, physical ability, age, economic or social status, or veteran status.
