Research and Training Fellowships for Clinicians

AES Research and Training Fellowships for Clinicians provide mentored support for clinical fellows or recently appointed clinical faculty who intend to pursue basic, translational, or clinical epilepsy research, including epidemiologic or behavioral studies, clinical trials, studies of disease mechanisms or treatments, the development of new technologies, and health services and outcomes research. Applicants must be able to devote at least 50% of their time to the fellowship and should propose a research project and training program designed to develop scientific skills and preliminary data in preparation for an independent research career. The fellowship award provides up to $50,000 for one year for stipend and travel support to attend the AES Annual Meeting, as well as a one-year AES membership.
