One of the National Council on Problem Gambling’s (NCPG) key priorities is to build local research capabilities in the areas of gambling and problem gambling. In support of this aim, the NCPG encourages original empirical research examining issues directly related to problem gambling, through its Problem Gambling Research Grant. To date, the Problem Gambling Research Grant has been awarded to 14 undergraduate students and 2 post graduate students.
The NCPG is seeking to award students pursuing a Bachelors/Masters/PhD degree (or an equivalent degree) from your university with the Problem Gambling Research Grant.
To qualify for the grant, students must:
a) Propose an original thesis/ research project (henceforth known as thesis); examining issues directly related to problem gambling (e.g. gambling behaviours and mindsets, risk/protective factors, prevention, treatment, impact, costs);
b) Seek approval from the student’s thesis supervisor (who must be a faculty member of a local university); and
c) Obtain clearance from the relevant Institutional Review Board or Ethics Committee on human subjects in the university/department.
