This morning, Apple opened ticket sales for the WWDC 2012, and they’ll doubtless be sold out in the time it takes you to blink. However, there remains another way to get through those doors and to the conference — if you’re a student. Apple will give away 150 student scholarships to the WWDC 2012. The restrictions on entry are fairly minor: you have to be 13 or older, a member of an Apple developer program, and be an enrolled student.
Since this is a scholarship, entrants will be judged on:
technical ability, creativity of ideas expressed in products or projects, prior WWDC attendance, technical and work experience. If there is a tie between applicants in the final judging process, Apple will base its final decision on the creativity of ideas, as outlined in the applicant’s Student Scholarship application.
Still, it’s cheaper and easier than trying to buy a ticket!
