    Every year, Apple provides free scholarships to students and STEM organization members who don't have the $1,599 necessary to purchase a ticket to the Worldwide Developers Conference.

    For Apple's 2019 WWDC event, scholarship applications were accepted from March 14 to March 24, with Apple promising to notify winners on April 15. April 15 has rolled around and emails are going out to those who were chosen to receive a scholarship now that Apple has reviewed the submissions.


    Apple is offering 350 scholarships in total, which will include a WWDC ticket, free lodging, and a one-year membership to the Apple Developer Program.

    Apple asked scholarship applicants to create an interactive Swift Playground able to be experienced within three minutes. Like last year, submissions were judged applications based on technical accomplishment, creativity of ideas, and content of written responses on the accompanying application.

    Apple held its developer ticket lottery in March and notified developers who won a full price ticket on March 21.

    At this year's WWDC event, Apple is expected to debut iOS 13, macOS 10.15, tvOS 13, and watchOS 6 at a keynote event set to be held on June 3. WWDC 2019 will take place from June 3 to June 7 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.

    Scholarship students and developers who were not chosen to attend the event will be able to follow along with the conference using the WWDC app and developer website.

    The WWDC scholarships are an excellent program. I commend Apple for doing it.

    My son is in high school and already building apps and will try to get a scholarship next year. If he gets in, can I get a ticket to go with him as a parent? Or do I have to win a ticket in the lottery? I can’t imagine him attending alone. Also, the regular tickets are way before the scholarships are announced.

    Depends on age. In Germany you'd have to bring a parent if 14 or younger. I don't think apple has educators/nurterers (is that correct for ger. Erzieher?) to take care of the youngsters.
