Research is one of the key pillars of the International Center for Gaming Regulation. The Center facilitates independent, nonpartisan, evidence-based research on issues that cover the wide-ranging topics surrounding regulated gaming.
We encourage scholarship in gaming regulation through fellowships targeting key areas. Two Executive Fellows from industry/regulation, and two Academic Fellows will research best practices in areas such as gaming policy, gaming law, licensing, compliance, and/or gaming operations.
2017-2018 Call for Research Fellows
The Center is offering up to three 6-month nonresident fellowships to support impactful research on important gambling regulatory issues. These fellowships will be awarded on a competitive basis via a peer review process. The submission deadline is September 1, 2017. Early submissions are encouraged. It is expected that the fellowship position will commence on October 1, 2017 and end on April 1, 2018.
