Create with VR Headset Grant

Prepare your students for the jobs of tomorrow.

Virtual reality (VR) is transforming how people work, socialize, play, and learn. The industry is growing rapidly, and real-time 3D skills are in high demand. Beyond entertainment and video games, virtual reality is being applied in industries such as healthcare, automotive, manufacturing, architecture, construction, and others. It is used for design visualization, virtual training, remote operation of equipment, and immersive marketing experiences.

In partnership with Meta Immersive Learning, the Create with VR Headset Grant empowers educational institutions serving underrepresented students in technology to tap into the power of VR and immersive learning.

Selected applicants will receive refurbished Meta Quest 2 headsets* and professional development for educators to facilitate VR creation with Unity.

All schools (high school and above) and education nonprofits located in the U.S. are eligible to apply. All applicants will be given full consideration, however, not everyone is guaranteed headsets.

For more information on selection criteria and other program details, visit our FAQ.

Given the popularity of the Create with VR Headset Grant Program, please be aware of the following deadlines:

  • July Training Participants: Application deadline is May 31
  • September Training Participants: Application deadline is August 5

In compliance with both Meta Quest and Unity terms of service, schools must serve learners aged 13 and above.

While this initial headset grant is for U.S. institutions only, those outside the U.S. are still eligible to join our free professional development in July, Create with VR for Educators, by completing the registration form.

*A refurbished Quest 2 is like-new, with no visible wear and tear. It has been sanitized, factory reset, and re-packaged with a "refurbished" label on the box.
