Don’t Forget! The Early Stage Investigator Grant Application Deadline Is May 1!

One goal of the NCRG research program is to cultivate the next generation of researchers in the field of gambling disorders and responsible gaming. The NCRG is committed to giving the best and brightest young investigators an opportunity to gain funding, which is one of the reasons why we brought together 20 young investigators for the March workshop in Chicago, Ill. Another way that we’re supporting young researchers is with theEarly Stage Investigatorgrant category of ourProject Grants Program. Some grantees includeIris Balodis, Ph.D., from Yale University, andHeather Gray, Ph.D., from the Division on Addictions, Cambridge Health Alliance, a division of Harvard Medical School.

The 2013 deadline to apply for an Early Stage Investigator Grant is quickly approaching, so if you have an idea for a research project in this category, be sure to submit your application by Wednesday, May 1.

Eligible applicants must be within 10 years of completing their terminal research degree or within 10 years of completing medical residency. Applicants may request up to $65,000 per year in direct costs for a period not to exceed 24 months.

Applications for this award must propose a research plan that has:

  1. 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.
