Research & Training Workshops
The American Epilepsy Society, through the Research and Training Committee, provides funding for targeted workshops intended for broad-based, national clinical or scientific audiences and on specific collaborative consensus or review topics in neuroscience that are novel and creative. Often, AES will provide support for travel stipends for junior faculty/trainees and for publication or proceedings. Funds may not be used for indirect costs. To submit a proposal, complete and return the following application.
The purpose of the Research and Training Committee is to provide evaluation, planning and recommendations on AES sponsored research and training programs. The committee is responsible for identifying all funds currently used to support research or training by AES; reviewing other sources of support for epilepsy training and research (including the NIH funding and private funding); making recommendations to the AES board on an annual basis for allocation of research and training funds; and reviewing the outcomes of research and support training by previously funded investigators or previous trainees.
