This year, Apple is opening up its developer conference to students through a scholarship program.

Apple (AAPL 4.08%) will award up to 150 student scholarships to attend its World Wide Developers Conference in June. The company said on its website, "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."

Eligibility requirements for applying for the scholarship program include:

  • Being a full or part-time student.
  • Being 13 or older.
  • Being a current member of the iOS Developer Program, iOS Developer University Program, iOS Developer Enterprise Program, or Mac Developer Program.
In addition to those requirements, students must create an app that tells the company about themselves and submit a formal application. Apple said on its site that the app "should highlight development projects you've worked on, your educational and professional background, technical skills, and interests."

Apple will judge the applications based on the technical difficulty and creativity of the app, as well as on essay questions and work experience. Students will be able to apply starting April 29, and the deadline for scholarship applications is May 2. Interested applicants can find out more information about the scholarship at https://developer.apple.com/wwdc/students/.
