Funding for Established Investigators

AES offers three funding mechanisms to help empower established investigators to innovate and accelerate research to understand and cure epilepsy and its consequences. All funding mechanisms are available to basic, translational, and clinical research for epilepsy, seizures, and related disorders. Proposals are reviewed and selected by the Research & Training Council of AES, led by basic and clinical co-chairs.

AES Infrastructure Grants provide up to $50,000 to facilitate the creation of national or international multicenter research programs. 

AES Research and Training Workshop Grants support scientific conferences and workshops that address timely and important topics in epilepsy research.

AES Seed Grants offer “seed” funds to help enable established investigators to pursue new and innovative directions in their laboratory. An established investigator is defined as having at least an associate professor or equivalent level appointment with a history of successful NIH/NSF/VA funding.
