CGTrader’s Virtual Reality Scholarship Opportunity

Written by:



The largest 3D model marketplace CGTrader invites all Parsons School of Design students to participate on Virtual Reality Scholarship Challenge to win $1,000. All you have to do is write and submit an original essay (500-1000 words) on the topic “The future of virtual reality: on the footsteps of changing the world or on the brink of failure?”  

Yes, this is a very broad topic, but that is how VR is – the potential is great yet uncertain; there are a lot of potential applications, but there’s also a lot of over-excitement, too. You can narrow down the topic to whatever your vision or interest with VR is – whether you are thinking about the conceptual pros and cons of the medium, writing about specific applications that excite you, reviewing technological advancements, or doing some critical business thinking regarding this new medium, you are doing the right thing.

The deadline to apply is March 1, 2017. For more info, please visit:
