WWDC 2017 Scholarship Information Available

When Apple announced their World Wide Developer Conference they announced that information about their scholarships would be announced later. Apple has now announced the Scholarship information.

Apple’s WWDC Scholarship program is designed for those that are 13 years old, as a registered developer and enrolled in a course of study, or an alumni of STEM organization.

There are a few requirements for applying. They are as follows:

  • Personal Information
  • School Information
  • Create a Swift Playground

The Personal Information must include your Apple ID, and a PDF, PNG, or JPG, that includes your membership information.

If you are a student, you will need to provide a current copy of your schedule in PDF, PNG, or JPG. If you are a member or alumni of a STEM organization, you will need to provide a PDF, PNG, or JPG of your membership information as well as your local leader’s information.

The biggest requirement is that you will need to create a visually interactive scene in a Swift playground that can be experienced within three minutes. This could be just about anything, but it is a requirement to be awarded a scholarship.

The requirements for the Swift Playground are:

  • The Swift playground you submit should be created entirely by you as an individual. Group work will not be considered.
  • The Swift playground should be built using Swift Playgrounds on iPad or Xcode on macOS.
  • The Swift playground should function properly and run on the latest releases of Swift Playgrounds and iOS or Xcode and macOS.
  • All content should be in English.
  • The .zip file size should not be more than 25 MB.
  • Any resources in the project should be included locally in the zip file that you provide, as your Swift playground will be judged offline.

Scholarship recipients will receive a free ticket to Apple’s WWDC 2017 conference as well as free lodging. Applying for a WWDC Scholarship will be available on March 27th, the same day that entry into the WWDC lottery will begin.
