CGTrader

Enter the CGTrader Scholarship 2016 challenge to win $1,000 for your education bills. All you have to do is write and submit an original essay 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 objective of the Science Fellowships program is to prepare for the long-term future by training young researchers. Science fellowships provide opportunities for scientists of NATO's Partner countries to pursue their research work or continue their training in a NATO country, and vice-versa. There are a limited number of fellowships available in some countries for NATO-country scientists to study in another NATO country. The duration of the fellowships offered varies by type and country. The typical length of basic fellowships is one year, with renewal in certain cases; the duration of advanced fellowships ranges three to twenty-four months; and senior fellowships, three months. Each NATO country decides on the type of fellowship and the level of financial support it offers to individual fellows , as well as deciding on which scientific fields and professions it will support. The criteria for selection and the eligibility conditions therefore vary by country, but independent committees of senior scientists judge all applications on scientific merit. Science fellows usually choose the subject of research or study. The amount of a fellowship varies by country and depends on the length of tenure. Usually, NATO Science Fellowships cover travel and living costs, but not all countries offer all types of fellowships. Applicants from NATO countries should make inquiries of or submit applications to the National Administrator in the country of which they are nationals, regardless of present residence. (For a list of National Administrators, please see Web site). Open to students from Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, the United Kingdom or Canada.
