Apple has just started sending out emails to WWDC student scholarship winners informing that they are now eligible to this year’s conference free of charge. Steps for claiming a ticket will be arriving in winners’ inboxes soon. Those who didn’t win a ticket are also being notified.

Apple notified winners in the ticket lottery earlier this month that they would have a week to purchase a ticket to the event for $1,599. After that time expired, a number of developers were told that they had been selected for a chance to buy unclaimed tickets.

The student scholarship applicants are the last set of developers still waiting to see if they’ve been selected to attend. Presumably, any unclaimed scholarships after a certain period of time will be offered to others like the paid tickets, although Apple hasn’t confirmed this.
