In partnership with the Sanford Underground Research Facility.
APS 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. Black Hills State University, in cooperation with the Sanford Underground Research Facility, is hosting a regional CUWiP in 2016, targeting Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado, Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin. The CUWiP conferences are held at no cost to the undergraduate students, except for a $25 registration fee. The conference will cover the cost of lodging and meals. Traditionally, the home institution covers the cost of travel, but there are a limited amount of travel grants available.
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.
