NCRG Announces 2011 Funding Opportunities

The National Center for Responsible Gaming is pleased to announce it has allocated more than $700,000 for grants in support of research on prevention and treatment of gambling disorders in 2011. The grants, ranging from $10,000 to $100,000 per year, will be awarded on a competitive basis. Applicants may seek one-year Exploration and Seed Grants to fund pilot data, a new direction on an existing project, secondary analysis of existing data, or small, self-contained research projects. Large Grants of up to $75,000 per year for two years are available for more extensive research projects.

The NCRG is dedicated to fostering the next generation of gambling researchers and, therefore, has added two career development awards for 2011. The Early Stage Investigator Grant and the Postdoctoral Fellowship are intended for researchers within 10 years and five years of their terminal degrees.

The NCRG also announced a request for applications for the development and testing of an online screening and brief intervention for college students. The resulting program will be located on the NCRG’s website,, which is scheduled to launch in 2011.
