Background On The VIRTUAL REALITY RENTAL CO. SCHOLARSHIP

After launching in Texas and expanding our business across the country, our founder wanted to support the next generation of technology entrepreneurs.

The VRtrepreneur Scholarship is our way of funding tomorrow’s top technology entrepreneurs. Maybe you sowed the seeds of your entrepreneurial spirit by building websites or iPhone apps in high school. Maybe you’re planning on building the next big technology company. Either way, if you've got the entrepreneurial bug in you, then we want to help fund your dream. We’re willing to grant $1,000 to any student we believe has the potential to change the world through technology entrepreneurship. If you are interested in starting your own business, we'd love to hear from you.

We offer the scholarship to a student each semester. The entry for the Fall semester is May 1st to August 20th and it's open for the Spring semester from August 31st to December 31st.. We will announce the recipient on August 31 and January 2nd of the subsequent year.
