NCRG Offers Nearly $1 Million in 2013 to Study Gambling Disorders and Adds New Fellowship Opportunity

by: NCRG Staff | Jan 16, 2013

For 2013, the NCRG is excited to allocate $950,000 for funding new research for its competitive project grants program. This year, the research grants will be awarded in four previously-awarded categories.

  • Travel Grants (up to $1,500 for one year) support postdoctoral researchers presenting a poster or paper on gambling disorders research at a scientific meeting in 2013 or 2014. 
  • Seed Grants (up to $25,000 for one year) provide funding for small research projects that can be completed in one year.
  • Early Stage Investigator Grants (up to $65,000 per year for two years) are 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.
  • Large Grants (up to $75,000 per year for two years) provide up to two years of support for discrete, specified, circumscribed research projects related to gambling disorders.

Additionally, the NCRG will offer an Addiction Fellowship ($85,000 per year for two years) to support postdoctoral research training to help prepare qualified individuals for careers that will have a significant impact on the understanding and treatment of gambling disorders. This marks the first year that the NCRG will offer this type of grant funding specifically tailored for M.D.s and Ph.Ds.

To apply, interested applicants can visit the NCRG’s online Research Center for the 2013 research grants brochure, applications and instructions. Below are the deadlines for each grant category:

The NCRG is especially interested in research investigations that develop and test psychosocial or pharmacological approaches for prevention, intervention, treatment and relapse prevention of gambling disorders.
