  • Seed Grants(up to $25,000 for one year) provide funding for small research projects that can be completed in one year.
  • Early Stage Investigator Grants(up to $65,000 per year for two years) are intended to help ensure that a pool of highly trained scientists is available to address the research needs of the field of gambling disorders. Eligible applicants are within 10 years of completing their terminal research degree or within 10 years of completing medical residency.
