Previously, we talked about the process I followed to get awarded with a student scholarship on BlackHat Europe 2016. As I told you, I followed the application process and I answered the required questions, as I showed you in part 1.
In this post, I will show you the acceptance email that I received in my inbox, ~40 days after my application.
