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.

Funding opportunity for researchers

Applications are now open for the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation’s Grants for Gambling Research Program.

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.

For this funding round, researchers are invited to submit proposals under the theme “Understanding and Addressing Gambling Harm”.

Applications close at 2:00 pm AEST on Friday, 17 May 2019.
