Funding to support research focused on gambling and gambling problems among emerging adults in the US.
The International Center for Responsible Gaming (ICRG), formerly the National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG), is a US-based 501(c)(3) charitable organisation that was founded in 1996. Its mission is to help individuals and families affected by gambling disorder by supporting peer-reviewed, scientific research into gambling disorder; encouraging the application of new research findings to improve prevention, diagnostic, intervention and treatment strategies; and advancing public education about gambling disorder and responsible gaming.
The International Center for Responsible Gaming (ICRG) is providing research grants for projects focused on gambling and gambling problems among emerging adults in the US.
The ICRG is open a variety of topics in research proposals. Examples include:
- A social norms approach has been used effectively in college alcohol prevention studies as well as college gambling projects. Applicants might experiment with this approach in the development and testing of new responsible gambling and intervention strategies suitable for this demographic group.
- A national survey of gambling behaviours and problems among young adults in the US such as a replication of past studies.
- A study of young adult involvement in daily fantasy sports, online sports wagering, betting on eSports and other forms of online gambling.
- The convergence of video game playing and online gambling (online sports wagering, gambling on e-Sports, daily fantasy sports, etc). Is there significant migration from video gaming to online gambling?
- The predictors of gambling problems in this population group.
