Fueled by the commitment to developing the next generation of epilepsy investigators and realizing our vision of eradicating epilepsy, the American Epilepsy Society is one of the largest non-governmental funders for those starting careers in epilepsy research.
AES research dollars support trainees, fellows, and newly-independent investigators working across the full spectrum of epilepsy research, from basic science through translational and clinical research for all types of epilepsies, seizures, and related conditions.
These grants are made possible by the generosity of AES members, funding partners, and philanthropic donations to the Susan S. Spencer Fund for clinical research fellowships and the Lennox and Lombroso Trust for research grants and fellowships.
Supporters and Contributing Partners
In addition to funding from AES, funding may be available from partner organizations for the Predoctoral, Postdoctoral, Research and Training Fellowships for Clinicians, and Junior Investigator Research Awards.
Some partners will support a proposal in full, with money earmarked for a quality proposal that aligns with their priorities. Other partners will help to support a proposal that aligns with their priorities if it competes successfully for AES co-funding.
AES is proud to partner with other non-profit organizations to leverage resources and make dollars go further to support scientists. Our partnerships have built-in flexibility to accommodate partners of all sizes and to allow both the partners and AES to decide whether a given proposal is the right one for their funds.
