All scholarships have been awarded.

Many thanks to those who donated to the fund and to all of the fantastic entries that we received.

Are you a student — secondary or higher — with an interest in mobile design or development? Have you considered rounding out your school year with a great event that has thought provoking sessions, numerous chances to mingle, and maybe even kick-start an exciting new career path? This year we are providing a limited number of full-conference passes made available via our scholarship program.

Note: the scholarship does not include any travel or hotel assistance.

Scholarship applications will be reviewed using a double-blind system. Your application will be anonymized by a trusted third-party, and will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee.

Scholars will be partnered with Guides, who will act as ambassadors for the duration of the conference, allowing scholars to easily connect with our community. If you or someone you know is interested in applying, please read the application instructions below.
