Apple is currently in the process of notifying WWDC 2014 Student Scholarship applicants of the outcome of their application. Those fortunate enough to have succeeded are also being sent information on how to claim their free conference ticket, which usually retails for iOS and Mac developers at $1,599.
The news comes from 9to5mac, which explains that unsuccessful applicants are also receiving word from Apple, too. The website explains:
The student scholarship applicants are the last set of developers still waiting to see if they’ve been selected to attend. Presumably, any unclaimed scholarships after a certain period of time will be offered to others like the paid tickets, although Apple hasn’t confirmed this.
As a reminder, Apple launched a ticket lottery for WWDC conference passes towards the beginning of the month, and a second batch of tickets were offered to previously unsuccessful developers soon after.
It seems Apple was handing out tickets which hadn’t been purchased by successful developers during the timeframe originally imposed by Cupertino; as 9to5mac notes, the same process will likely be repeated with the WWDC 2014 Student Scholarship awards.
Apple is expected to unveil its next-generation mobile and desktop operating systems at WWDC, however for developers the conference also offers a chance to attend dedicated workshops put on by Apple engineers.
WWDC is scheduled to begin on June 2, and the conference will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
