150 WWDC student scholarships offered by Apple for 2012 event

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:

  • Be a paid member of an Apple developer program as of August 1, 2011 or later
  • Or, a minor sharing a Registered Apple Developer account with a parent who is a member of an Apple developer program
  • Enrolled part-time or full-time in a school
  • Have proof of school enrollment
  • Be at least 13 years old
There doesn’t seem to be an upper age limit, so anyone who meets the above requirements is eligible. All applications will be considered on technical ability, creativity, prior WWDC attendance as well as technical and work experience.

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.
