GrantWatch ID#: 162832

Number of Grants:

The number of awards granted each year is contingent upon available funds.

Estimated Size of Grant:

The fellowship award offers up to $30,000 for stipend and travel support to the AES Annual Meeting for one year, as well as a one-year AES membership.

Term of Contract:

July 1, 2022: Earliest award start date. May be delayed up to three months.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants must:
1. Be matriculating in a full-time doctoral (Ph.D.) program in a field relevant to epilepsy research.
2. Have a defined research plan and access to institutional resources to conduct the proposed project.
3. Have a qualified mentor(s) with expertise to supervise and provide guidance on the specific aspects of epilepsy related research targeted in the proposal. 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.
4. Have not previously been awarded an AES Predoctoral Fellowship.

In addition:
5. U.S. citizenship is not required; however, all research must be conducted in the U.S.
6. Applications are encouraged from women, members of minority groups, and people with disabilities.

Application Policies:
1. Prior unfunded applicants may reapply, but all applications will be treated as new submissions.
2. Only one application may be submitted from a given laboratory to the AES early career grant programs. Specifically, an individual may not serve as the primary mentor for more than one application across all mentored award programs. Similarly, an individual may not apply for a Junior Investigator Research Award and also be listed as the primary mentor on a proposal for a mentored award. If more than one application is submitted from a single laboratory (as reflected by the primary mentor or investigator) across the early career programs (Predoctoral Research Fellowship, Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, Research & Training Fellowship for Clinicians, Junior Investigator Research Awards, and Epilepsy Study Consortium Mini-Grants), only one of those proposals will be reviewed.
3. More than one application may be submitted from a single institution, but final funding decisions will take into account a preference to limit multiple awards to one institution.
