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.
