Yesterday, Oculus announced that it was bringing back Oculus Launch Pad–an initiative to provide resources to create VR projects to women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, and people from other underrepresented backgrounds–for its third year.
Applications are open until May 20 for up to 100 spots in the program. They’re looking for a wide range of projects, from 360 films to VR experiences and games.
Successful applicants will be invited to attend a two-day boot camp at Oculus’ headquarters in Menlo Park in June to jump-start their ideas, and will receive additional support in the following months to bring their project to fruition.
“Afterwards, participants will receive ongoing remote coaching, plus feedback on their work and the opportunity to compete for 2018 Oculus Launch Pad Grants to develop their prototype and launch a full experience on the Oculus Store,” reads Oculus’ blog post about this year’s initiative.
To date, Launch Pad has enabled more than 200 content creators and invested more than $900,000 in their projects.
