Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships up to $50,000 to USA early-career researchers with an M.D., Ph.D., Sc.D., PharmD, DO, or equivalent degree to support research and training in an area related to epilepsy. Funding is intended for basic, clinical, and translational research on the causes, treatments, and consequences of epilepsy, seizures, and related disorders and their treatment.

AES Research and Training Fellowships for Clinicians (RTFC) provide mentored support for clinical fellows or clinical faculty who intend to pursue a career in epilepsy research. Applicants should propose a research project and training program designed to develop scientific skills and preliminary data in preparation for an independent research career.

Quarterly payments are made to the institution for direct expense of the fellow (salary and benefits) and AES meeting travel costs only. Travel must be conducted during the funding period. Budget modifications to also include expenses other than salary and benefits (eg, tuition fees for training courses, technician / assistant support) will be considered on a case by case manner, evaluating if that modification is necessary to advance the RTFC goals of advancing the training and research of the applicant.

Successful applicants must devote at least 50% of their time to the Fellowship.

Term of Contract:

In general, the award term should be July 1, 2021-June 30, 2022. However, a delay of up to 3 months (beginning no later than October 1, 2021) in the start date is permitted if necessary

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants must:
1. Hold a MD, PhD, ScD, DO, PharmD, or equivalent degree in a relevant clinical discipline.
2. Be a clinical fellow, postdoctoral fellow, or newly appointed clinical faculty member within five years of first full-time appointment at an appropriate institution by the beginning of the project term. Researchers with appointments at the level of Adjunct Professor or Associate Professor are not eligible, nor are research assistants, graduate or medical students, medical residents, permanent government employees, or employees of private industry.
3. Have a defined research plan and access to institutional resources to conduct the proposed project.
4. Be able to devote at least 50% of their time to the Research and Training Fellowship. If a reduced protected time is deemed necessary by an early career clinical faculty applicant, such requests will be considered on a case by case manner and on a competitive basis, provided that such requests do not compromise the training experience and research goals of the applicant’s project. Early career clinical faculty applicants who request reduced effort for their RTFC must include in their application a justification and elaborate on their plans to ensure that the research and training goals of the RTFC will be met.
5. Have a qualified mentor with expertise to supervise and provide guidance on epilepsy-related research. The mentor must not also be serving as the primary mentor for any other applications for early career grants to AES and must not be submitting a Junior Investigator Research Award.
6. Not be, or have previously been, the Principal Investigator on a multi-year research or career development or project grant, such as an NIH K08, K23, K99/R00, R01, or R03. However, individuals who received support through an institutional K awards (i.e. K12) are eligible provided that the provided funds do not overlap.
7. Have not previously been awarded a Research and Training Fellowship for Clinicians.

In addition:
8. Physician applicants whose research will involve patient care or direct involvement with patients must have completed all residency training and be licensed to practice medicine at their institution.
9. US citizenship is not required; however, all research must be conducted in the US
