National Center for Responsible Gaming Invites LOIs for Gambling Research

Since 1996, the National Center for Responsible Gaming has served as the only private national funder of scientific research aimed at increasing the understanding of gambling disorder and finding effective methods of treatment.

In support of this mission, NCRG is accepting Letters of Intent for research on gambling disorders. Grants of up to $75,000 a year for two years will be awarded for research with direct implications for gambling policy, though research based on non-policy topics also are welcome.

NCRG is looking for proposals of high scientific merit from investigators who demonstrate the ability to disseminate their work at high-impact conferences and in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Letters of Intent are due June 3. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by September 3, 2019.

Eligible applicants include domestic or international public or private nonprofit or for-profit organizations. The principal investigator must hold a PhD, MD, or other terminal degree.

See the National Center for Responsible Gaming website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
