What, Where, and When

If you are a woman studying physics or related field at NOVA, you have the unique opportunity to attend CUWiP in January hosted by the George Washington University.  You do not really need to be a declared Physics major, only be taking or have taken Physics classes, and be interested in career opportunities in Physics.
The conference is sponsored by the American Physical Society and is hosted by the George Washington University. It runs Friday evening, January 12, till Sunday afternoon, January 14,  2018.


Lodging and meals will be provided for participants who are accepted to the conference. In the past, CUWiP has been able to ensure that nearly all students had travel support either through their department or through the conference. For inquiries, email
