Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA researchers with an M.D., Ph.D., Sc.D., PharmD, RN, or equivalent degree to support research in an area related to epilepsy. Funding is intended for proposals addressing a wide range of basic, clinical, and translational research studies of disease treatments and mechanisms, epidemiologic or behavioral studies, the development of new technologies, and health services and outcomes research. This grant program is intended to seed the launch of long-term research programs funded by other sources.

Quarterly payments are made to the applicant's institution, and the funds may only be used to support the direct costs of research. Allowable use of grant funds includes: salary for the principal investigator and for scientific personnel directly engaged in the research project; consumable supplies, disposables, and animals necessary to fulfill the project’s specific aims; and travel or conference participation related to the conduct of the research or for the purpose of presenting the results of the research at appropriate scientific or medical meetings. Travel must be conducted during the funding period.

Number of Grants:

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

Estimated Size of Grant:

Successful applicants receive up to $50,000, plus complimentary registration to the Annual Meeting of the American Epilepsy Society

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, PharmD, RN, or equivalent degree.
2. Have an academic appointment at the level of Assistant Professor or equivalent at a university, medical school, research institution, or medical center. Researchers with other early faculty appointments (such as Instructor, Adjunct Track, etc.) may apply but are strongly encouraged to provide a letter of support from their department chair. Postdoctoral associates, postdoctoral fellows, clinical fellows, and researchers appointed to the position of associate professor or higher are not eligible. Clinicians with faculty appointments who desire a mentored research experience should instead apply for the AES Research and Training Fellowship for Clinicians.
3. Not currently hold or have previously received a larger, multi-year award for independent research, such as an NIH R01 grant.
4. Have a defined research plan and access to institutional resources to conduct the proposed project.
5. Have not previously been awarded an American Epilepsy Society Junior Investigator Award or Research Grant.
6. Not be listed as the primary mentor on a proposal for a mentored research award by AES. The policy for AES awards is to allow only one proposal to be considered each year from any given laboratory

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

Grant funds may not be used for: indirect costs or institutional overhead; purchase of permanent equipment that exceeds 10% of the budget; payment of salaries of collaborators at other institutions; or membership dues, subscriptions, books, or journals.
