APS CUWiP at GW: Applying to CUWiP

Application and Registration Procedure - Apply Now!

Applications to CUWiP are handled centrally by the APS. You can apply here. APS and the CUWiP host sites endeavor to accept all reasonable applications they can accommodate. In the event that there are more applications than the local host sites can accommodate, preference will be given to those who are attending CUWiP for the first time, and those who are undergraduate physics majors.

Applications are first made through the APS central website between Setember 1st, when applications open, and October 13th, the application deadline. Applicants recieve notification if they are accepted, waitlisted or rejected by November 6th. Once applicants are accepted, they must register by November 17th. If there are still slots free after the first round of registration closes, waitlisted students will be invited to register on November 22nd, and they must register online by December 1st. Only students who passed through the original application process may register. If you are not an undergraduate student, but will be attending CUWiP to bring undergraduate students, or to experience a CUWiP before you host one, please contact us at cuwip2018@gwu.edu as soon as you are aware that you will possibly be attending. We can only cover the costs of travel and accommodation for accepted students, but we would like to include you in the conference events and catering, and ensure that you have access to the discount hotel rate.

Once you have been accepted and registered, go to the relevant pages of this website for details on travel booking and financial support.  Please note that participants are not responsible for booking accomodation themselves, only for booking their own travel. Please note that flights must be pre-approved by emailing the itinerary and costs to cuwip2018@gwu.edu.
