Grants for Gambling Research Program
The Grants for Gambling Research Program encourages researchers from a variety of disciplines to undertake independent, investigator-initiated research that will build on our knowledge of how gambling affects the Victorian community and inform strategies and activities to address harm.
The Foundation awards research grants for areas of study that will build on our knowledge of how gambling affects the Victorian community, inform the advice we provide to government and the strategies and activities we support to address harm.
Each round of the program funds research to explore priority areas identified by the Foundation. For information about ongoing projects, follow the links below.
