Fee Waiver

APS CUWiP offers a fee waiver if you are unable to pay the registration fee.

We ask that you please request financial assistance from your physics department first. If your department is unable to cover your registration fee, you may request the Fee Waiver Request Form by contacting APS CUWiP.

In the form, you will need to provide a brief statement of financial need and verify that department funds are not available. Once your statement is reviewed, you will receive additional instructions on how to complete your registration. Please note that you cannot register until the waiver has been approved. The last day to request a fee waiver is Monday, December 11, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. ET.

Food and shared room occupancy accommodation will be covered by the conference.

Travel Assistance

Travel grants are available to participants whose departments are unable to provide full travel support.

Once you have verified that department funding is not available, please contact your assigned host site’s local organizing committee (LOC). If approved, you will be reimbursed for travel expenses. Travel reimbursement cannot be guaranteed without prior approval. APS recommends that attendees refrain from paying for their travels until the LOC approves the purchase.
