NCRG Funding Update: Large Grants and Early Stage Investigator Grants Deadline Approaching

by: NCRG Staff | May 19, 2011

Did you know that the National Center for Responsible Gaming has allocated more than $700,000 to fund research that advances our understanding about gambling disorders in 2011? The last opportunities to apply for this year’s funding are quickly approaching. Start planning to submit your letter of intent for Large Grants and Early Stage Investigator Grants before the July 1, 2011 deadline.

Large Grants

The Large Grants program provides up to two years of support for discrete, specified, circumscribed research projects related to gambling disorders. Applicants may request up to $75,000 in direct costs per year for a period not to exceed 24 months.  The NCRG expects to award two Large Grants in this funding cycle.

Last year’s awardees are doing fascinating research. Dr. Matthew P. Martens (who will be a featured speaker during the NCRG Webinar on June 1, 2011) is testing a personalized feedback-only intervention for “at-risk” college students to see if the feedback information will influence their gambling behavior.  Dr. John Nyman is studying the differentiating factors between people who are recreational gamblers with no gambling-related problems and people who are pathological gamblers.

To apply, download the grant announcement and application form. Submit your letter of intent by July 1, 2011.

Early Stage Investigator Grants

The Early Stage Investigator Grants program is intended to help ensure that a pool of highly trained scientists is available to address the research needs of the field of gambling disorders. Eligible applicants are within 10 years of completing their terminal research degree or within 10 years of completing medical residency. Applicants may request up to $65,000 in direct costs for a period not to exceed 24 months.

Applications for this award must propose a research plan that:

  1. Has intrinsic research importance in the area of prevention and treatment of gambling disorders, and
  2. Will serve as a suitable vehicle for learning the methodology, theories and concepts needed for a well-trained, independent researcher in the area of gambling research.

To apply, download the grant announcement and application form. Submit your letter of intent by July 1, 2011. The NCRG expects to award one Early Stage Investigator Grant in 2011.
