WWDC Scholarships Now Include Lodging

Stephen Hackett:

I’m glad to see lodging covered as part of the scholarship. Most of the time, the WWDC ticket itself is not the most expensive thing about the trip.

Bravo. When I attended WWDC on a student scholarship (in 2002, coincidentally the last year in San Jose), lodging was not included. However, Apple did book an inexpensive hotel, within walking distance, and arrange roommates. With triple occupancy, the lodging ended up being only about $250 per person for the whole week. Most of the food was included, so the main costs were airfare and ground transportation from/to SJC (not far).
