Gambling Disorders 360°

Exploring the latest news, issues and research relating to gambling disorders and responsible gaming

Let the NCRG Send You to Phoenix, San Antonio and Baltimore! Travel Grants Available for Young Investigators

by: NCRG Staff | Nov 21, 2014

New gambling research is not usually represented at the premiere national scientific meetings focused on addiction. If you are a young investigator with new gambling-related research to present, you can help fill the void! Apply for an NCRG Travel Grant category to support your participation in conferences such as College on Problems of Drug Dependence (CPDD), the American Psychological Association, the Society for Neuroscience and other academic meetings.

Applicants may request up to $1,500 for travel in 2015. Funds can be used to support economy air transportation, lodging, ground transportation, meals and early-bird registration fees.

Eligible applicants must be within 10 years of their doctorate (Ph.D.) or medical residence. The applicant must be the first author of the paper or poster to be presented. Eligible meetings include academic conferences that are not focused primarily on gambling and that employ rigorous peer review in the selection of posters and presentations.
