Today, April 25, 2012, Apple announced the availability of 150 student developer scholarships to its annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. While the June 11-15 event sold out in less than two hours, the scholarship process is open until May 2, 2012.
On its scholarship page, Apple shares:
“If you're a student that’s creating some really cool apps, tell us about yourself. We want to reward outstanding student developers with the opportunity to attend this year's conference on a WWDC 2012 Student Scholarship.”
This would be a great opportunity for a developer who is focusing on the iOS platform. While the tech sector seems to be growing here in Nashville, attendance at this conference would light a fire under any student from here or elsewhere.
To be considered, Apple requests that each applicant:
If you happened to be one of those lucky individuals who registered early at the $1599 price tag, safe travels to San Francisco June 11-15. If you are a student who is interested in attending more than 100 sessions with Apple engineers, sign-in now and apply before May 2. Best wishes.
