Gorilla & CloudResearch Grants for Behavioral Researchers

Appli­ca­tions for the Spring Grants are now closed, but reg­is­ter to hear about future grant rounds:

Gorilla Experiment Builder is an online tool designed for behavioral research that lets you create, manage, and run your experiment all in one tool. With an easy to use GUI, there’s no need to code! Gorilla sup­ports every­thing from surveys to complex psy­cho­log­i­cal tasks, includ­ing reac­tion time tasks, games, mul­ti­play­er studies, and more.

Par­tic­i­pants can take part from any­where with a browser and an inter­net con­nec­tion, in their homes across the world or in the lab. Gorilla makes con­duct­ing studies and ana­lyz­ing the results straight­for­ward with its user-friend­ly inter­face and ver­sa­tile features.

CloudResearch is the best way to recruit par­tic­i­pants for online research. Their tools provide aca­d­e­m­ic and market researchers imme­di­ate access to mil­lions of diverse, high-quality respon­dents around the world.


This grant offers free access to all of the Gorilla tools, $300 CloudResearch credit to fund your par­tic­i­pant recruit­ment, plus $300 cash to cover any extras. We’re taking the stress out of funding your study. This grant is meant to enable access for early career researchers (PhD+ 5 years), PhD stu­dents and post­docs who want to take their research online or use our cutting edge tools (like Shop Builder, Game Builder, Mul­ti­play­er or our Experiment Builder) but haven’t been able so far.
