Apple WWDC Event: The notion that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is stingy often times comes from the hoard of cash that the company is sitting on. While this may be unfair, it is something that people bring up time and time again about Apple.
But as you may remember, we pointed out last week that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is actually quite generous with its money.
This time around, it appears that Apple is doing more of the same. Instead of helping those impacted by a disaster, the Cupertino based company is doing its part in shaping the next batch of great tech minds.
Yesterday, we released the details pertaining to the company’s famous Worldwide Developers Conference.
With tickets priced at $1,599, it is safe to say that a lot of people who want to attend will be unable to do so. This is especially true for the younger generation, such as those who are still in school.
Fortunately, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has plans to do something about this.
Here is what the company is offering:
“We want to reward creative, talented, and outstanding student developers with the opportunity to attend this year’s conference on a WWDC 2013 Student Scholarship.”
If you are a student developer and meet all the eligibility requirements, you can apply for a scholarship to the event. In short, this means you will have the ability to take part without having to purchase a ticket. Talk about generous.
You don’t have to look any further than the awards section of the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) web-page to see just how generous the company is being:
“Each developer selected for a WWDC 2013 Student Scholarship will receive a WWDC 2013 ticket which entitles them to attend WWDC 2013, held between June 10 and June 14 in San Francisco, California USA. Up to one hundred fifty (150) tickets will be awarded at Apple’s sole discretion. Only one ticket will be awarded per applicant. Tickets are non-transferable. There will be no substitution of awards and no cash awarded in lieu of the WWDC 2013 ticket. All applicable taxes are the sole responsibility of the scholarship recipient. Travel and accommodation expenses are not reimbursable by Apple. No transportation will be provided to attend WWDC. Attendance at certain WWDC events may be prohibited based on age (e.g., under 18 may not attend the WWDC Bash).”
With up to 150 tickets being awarded this is equivalent to roughly $240,000.
You don’t have anything to lose. Learn more about the eligibility and application requirements, cross your fingers, and hope for the best.
If Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) awards you one of the free tickets, you will be in for the time of your life.
