On August 8th, 2015, @vrgrls announced via Julie Young's Twitter handle (@juliey4) that they were teaming up with Oculus VR to fund females in the virtual reality industry to attend Oculus Connect 2, a conference where developers, gamers and VR enthusiasts come together to network and learn about the state of the VR industry. Our very own @janessanwhite applied and was awarded the scholarship today!
Beyond VR Dribble, White is currently a part of a group called Boise Virtual Reality Project, which is working hard to bring VR gear and equipment to creatives, schools and nonprofits in the Boise area. She is also working to produce a 360° web series called Creative Solutions Field Trips in which she tours the world interviewing the innovative brains of the world finding creative solutions to the planet's most pressing problems.
