Two deserving student app creators will each receive a generous $5,000 scholarship funded by the Kay Family Foundation to help them pursue their studies and refine their apps. They will also win a trip to CES in Las Vegas, where they will have the opportunity to show off their apps to an audience of technology influencers. The students will be recognized during the annual Mobile Apps Showdown live show and TransformingEDU conference. For the first time, Appreneur Scholar winners will also receive a free membership to the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society. This membership also qualifies the students to apply for a scholarship to attend the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE), a conference providing a forum for researchers, practitioners and educators in the software engineering field.
