Application: There is no cost to apply to CUWIP. 

Registration: There is a one-time registration fee of $45 for students who are accepted to attend the CUWiP conference. This fee helps offset some costs of the conference. In general, your department is expected to cover the registration and travel fees. If your costs are not borne by the department and the $45 would cause financial hardship, you may request a fee waiver by following the procedure explained in your acceptance email or by emailing for the appropriate form. The request takes approximately 48 hours to review. You must request a fee waiver before registering. The fee waiver requests must be made seven days in advance of the registration deadline.

Local accommodations, transportation, and meals: Once you arrive at the conference, we will provide all lodging, meals and transportation to the venue from the hotels, as needed.  

If you have any concerns about the registration fee, please email us at 

If you are unsure who to ask in your department, be sure to reach out to an academic advisor, faculty member you know, or other contacts for guidance on the process.
