Travel Information:

Attending Midwest SWIP:

Midwest SWIP seeks to make attendance affordable for all participants. This includes help finding accommodations with local SWIP members; no conference attendance fee; travel grants ($70) for students, the unemployed, and the underemployed; and free snacks throughout the conference. You do not need to be a SWIP member to participate in the conference, request local housing, or to request a travel grant.

For local accommodations, please contact Lauren Woormer at
