Flowchart Describing Process of Application to Acceptance, Registration, and Attendance

Online Application Form

Applications must be completed by 5:00pm EST on Monday, October 10th, 2022. 

Applying to attend CUWiP is free.



You will receive an email from APS in late October indicating your application status. If you are accepted to a CUWiP site, the email will contain instructions on how to register for that site by the deadline given in the email. You must register by the deadline contained in the email. If you do not, your acceptance will be void and the CUWiP spot you were offered will be offered to a wait-listed student.  

Registration requires a $45 fee, which helps offset the cost of the conferences. If your department will not covering the cost and the $45 would cause financial hardship, you may request a fee waiver by following the procedure explained in your acceptance email. Please note that fee waiver requests must be made seven days in advance of the registration deadline.

Cost of Attendance

We aim to make CUWiP accessible to everyone and are committed to minimizing the out-of-pocket cost for all attendees. All meals and accommodations during the conference are provided and the costs covered by the conference itself. Hence, you do not need to book or arrange accommodation on Friday or Saturday night. Travel to and from the conference is usually paid for by your home department. In cases where your own department or other sources can not cover the cost of travel to and from the conference, a small pool of travel funds is available so no one has to miss out on CUWiP for financial reasons. See the "Travel" page for additional details on travel support.
