WWDC 2017 Scholarship: Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) has become a worldwide event, as the Cupertino-based tech giant has grown in stature with time. Many tech enthusiasts want to become a part of this annual tech event. This year, the WWDC 2017 is going to be held at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose from June 5th to June 9th. As the WWDC has become a popular event with time, it has also become a costly affair to attain. The ticket price of this tech event is itself $1599 and you will need traveling and hotel expenses on top of that. So it is almost impossible for the students to attend this much-hyped tech event.
So to help the student to attend the WWDC event, Apple has launched a scholarship program, especially for the WWDC event. The Scholarship program covers most of the expenses of the students, including their travel and hotel expenses. But, just like the event is coming to a new home, Apple has incorporated some new rules to the WWDC Scholarship program too. The application process for the WWDC 2017 Scholarship program has been modified and the US-based tech giant has given a lot of stress on Swift Playgrounds this year.
