Hello @Rockjaw, Thank you for your reply! I do understand that this is a bit of a reach in terms of funding, but I do appreciate all of the information you've given me and will definitely check out the VR for Impact program. As far as a formal proposal, I have a current draft of my thesis available, although it is a bit lengthy (155 pages total, and a little less than 100 of that is dedicated to a few literature reviews and my research methodology). If you'd like me to send that to you, or for me to draft up a significantly shorter proposal detailing the studies and itemizing the funds needed (or any format that you would deem as a formal proposal), I can submit that to you within a few weeks. Thank you again!

Hi, I'm currently doing a research dissertation in the UK on virtual reality, two studies based around VR gaming experiences and one study on the potential for a new VR therapy for specific phobias. I was wondering if anyone here would know how/if I could ask for funding to help progress my research, as all three of my studies will take approximately 3-6 months to complete. The funds that I am seeking for are primarily for hardware costs (e.g. VR-ready computer, Vive headset, and heart rate monitor) along with participant compensation. Thanks! (I've included a link below for a site that I've been working on to explain my research a bit further, although it's still a work in progress. If you're worried about the link, the site is vrbolton.wordpress.com) VR Bolton
