Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation
The Grants for Gambling Research Program was initiated by the Department of Justice in 2006 and transferred to the foundation when we were established in July 2012.
So far, over $3.5 million has been granted to fund 36 independent research projects across seven rounds of grants.
The program encourages researchers from a variety of disciplines to undertake independent, investigator-initiated research into gambling and problem gambling.
We support and encourage young researchers to enter the gambling field, and in recent rounds we have allocated a portion of funding specifically for early career researchers.
Each round of the program funds research to explore priority areas identified by the foundation.
Round 8 of the Grants for Gambling Research Program will be open for applications in early 2016.
The program provides funding of up to $200,000 over three years for investigator-initiated research projects. The program also invites early career researchers to apply for funding of up to $50,000 over two years.
