Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) Diversity Scholarships

Apple WWDC Scholarships

To encourage greater diversity amongst its developer community, Apple is offering scholarships to provide students and developers the opportunity to attend their annual Worldwide Developers Conference which is usually held in San Francisco, California.

The scholarships are open to students and members or alumni of the STEM organizations Apple has selected, and are available to those over the age of 13. In addition, unlike regular WWDC attendees, these scholarship recipients won’t have to be a member of one of Apple’s paid developer programs. However, interested student developers will have to do more than just submit an application.

To apply, you must use your creativity and coding skills to build and submit an app that tells us about you. Your Mac app or iOS app must be written in Objective-C and Swift, or written entirely in Swift. You will need to also include proof of enrollment from your school or proof of membership from one of the listed STEM organizations.

The full list of STEM organizations includes: App Camp for Girls, Black Founders, Black Girls Code, Blacks in Technology, Coalition for Queens, Code.org, Code2040, CodeNow, Girl Develop It, Girls Who Code, Hack the Hood, Hack bright Academy, LaTechLa, Latinos in Information, Science and Technology Association (LISTA), National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT), National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Technovation, Thurgood Marshall College Fund, Women Who Code, and #YesWeCode.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in APRIL of each year, and the award amount usually VARIES.
