Gambling research capacity grants
For 2022, we are offering two grant types:
- one PhD scholarship of up to $55,000 per year for 3 years per candidate, or pro-rata for part-scholarships
- one post-doctoral fellowship up to $150,000 per year for 3 years per candidate.
About our PhD scholarships
We established PhD scholarships to support people involved in gambling research to achieve their proposed research goals and build their career in this important field.
You’re invited to apply for a PhD scholarship if you’ve completed your honours year or hold (or expect to hold) a master’s degree in the same discipline. You must also meet all eligibility requirements for the PhD you intend to pursue or have confirmation of an enrolment offer.
About our post-doctoral fellowships
We established post-doctoral fellowships to support early-career researchers to continue developing their skills and build their career in the field of gambling harm minimisation.
You’re invited to apply for a post-doctoral fellowship if you’re an early career researcher who was awarded a PhD less than 7 years ago.
The research themes we're interested in
- individual and community level gambling harm-minimisation
- regulation of gambling products, practices and environments
- gambling among vulnerable or target groups
- emerging gambling technologies and new trends
- measuring and understanding gambling prevalence and harm
- efficacy and effectiveness of treatments.
We’ll prioritise research that directly contributes to gambling harm prevention and minimisation in NSW.
Applications for the 2022 Gambling Research Capacity Grants open Monday 1 November 2021 and close 21 January 2022.
Applications are to be submitted through our Grants Portal
