PennApps is the oldest and one of the largest hackathons hosted by college

developing your project and attending workshops. More importantly, this is a place where hundreds
of passionate hackers get together to learn, connect, and inspire each other.

How will my application be evaluated?
We have a team of organizers reviewing your applications
on a rolling basis with a standardized rubric, taking into consideration both your written
responses and your portfolio.
If PennApps is in-person, how does travel reimbursement look like?
We will make decisions
about reimbursement on an individual basis.
Do I have to have a team before I apply?
No! You can apply as an individual and we will
facilitate team formation closer to the hackathon. However, you will have to submit a final
project in a team of 2-4 people.
