Research on Gambling Disorders -
The National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG)
The NCRG is committed to a multi-disciplinary approach and, therefore, welcomes applications from investigators in
psychology, psychiatry, epidemiology, public health, sociology, economics, neuroscience, and other relevant disciplines.
Priority will be given to projects focused on prevention and treatment of gambling disorders. The Institute’s Project
Grants program is designed to increase the number of researchers working in the field, encourage new investigators to
explore gambling disorders and foster multidisciplinary collaboration. The Project Grants program also is intended to
increase the number of gambling studies disseminated through high-impact conferences and peer-reviewed journals,
and developed into larger projects with support from the NIH and other major funders.
The Institute awards grants in five categories:
• Exploration Grants (up to $10,000 for one year)
• Seed Grants (up to $25,000 for one year)
• Large Grants (up to $75,000 per year for two years)
• Early Stage Investigator Grants (up to $65,000 for two years)
• Postdoctoral Fellowship (up to $43,000 for one year)
Deadlines vary but the earliest ones occur on April 1, 2011.
