CUWiP Application Deadline *this Friday*!


The application deadline for the 2014 Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) is *this Friday*, November 1. These are three-day regional conferences for undergraduate physics majors, held in eight locations simultaneously from Friday, January 17, through Sunday afternoon, January 19, 2014. The goal of the conferences is to provide you with information, resources, and motivation to support your pursuit of a physics major and a career in physics.

The conferences will offer inspirational talks by female physicists; student poster or presentation sessions; workshops and panel discussions on topics such as summer research, graduate school, physics careers, and professional development; and opportunities for networking and informal mentoring. Food and lodging is provided for student participants; some travel awards are also available for those who cannot obtain travel support from their department.

This is a great opportunity, and everyone is welcome to apply (guys, too)! We’d love to hear about your experience if you do attend—please drop us a line using the form below to let us know!  You can learn more about the 2014 sites and the application procedure here.

The locations are:

  • Florida State University
  • Louisiana State University
  • Pennsylvania State University
  • Stony Brook University/BNL
  • UC Berkeley
  • University of Chicago/ANL/FNAL
  • University of Maryland/NIST
  • University of Utah

We hope many of you attend!

I am a fourth-year graduate student at the University of Maryland, College Park. I currently do astronomy education research with Chandra Turpen, Ed Prather, Joe Redish and Colin Wallace, focusing on how professional development workshops help faculty to grow as educators. Prior to that, I studied distant, highly magnified, gravitationally lensed galaxies to investigate where they formed their stars and why.

Outside of academics, I love travel, hiking, music, and vegan food. :)
