Women in Physics Groups

The APS Committee on the Status of Women in Physics (CSWP) offers grants to women in physics (WiP) groups at U.S. colleges and universities. The purpose of these grants is to support the CSWP mission of recruiting and retaining women in physics at the undergraduate level. WiP groups are uniquely able to address this mission locally by encouraging and supporting the participation of women in their departments.

Below you will find a list of WiP groups who agreed to be placed on the APS website to serve as a resource for others seeking to start such communities. If you would like to add your group to this list, please email women@aps.org
