This year the National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG) is celebrating 20 years of funding high quality, peer-reviewed scientific research on gambling disorder. Since 1996 the NCRG has awarded more than $18 million in support of investigations of gambling disorder and youth and college gambling through its competitive grants program. The NCRG is proud to continue this mission by offering Travel Grants, Seed Grants and Centers of Excellence in Gambling Research Grants in 2016.
Travel Grants are designed to support post-doctoral investigators presenting research on gambling disorder at major scientific meetings that do not normally feature gambling-related presentations. Applicants may request up to $1,500 for economy air travel, lodging, ground transportation, meals and early-bird registration fees. Applications for Travel Grants may be submitted any time.
Seed Grants support research activities such as pilot studies, secondary analysis of existing data and development of research methodology. Applicants may request up to $30,000 in direct costs for these one-year grants. The application deadline for 2016 is August 1.
The NCRG Centers of Excellence in Gambling Research Grants grants provide long-term institutional funding for broad, multidisciplinary investigations on gambling disorder. Applicants may request up to $350,000 in direct costs for a period not to exceed three years. Letters of intent to apply for a center grant are due June 1, 2016. Applicants invited to apply for a center grant will submit their proposals on October 3, 2016.
The NCRG welcomes applications from investigators in psychology, psychiatry, epidemiology, public health, sociology, economics, neuroeconomics, neuroscience and other relevant disciplines.
