Apple to Offer 150 Free WWDC ‘Scholarships’ to Promising Young App Developers

In keeping with their tradition to foster the talents of young developers, and their commitment to education, Apple is once again offering 150 WWDC scholarships to students 13 years old or older who aspire to develop great apps. Apple made a similar offer last year – and I for one am glad to see them offer the program once more!
