The Epilepsy Study Consortium Mini-grant

The Epilepsy Study Consortium is sponsoring a mini-grant of up to $22,000 for epilepsy fellows to undertake a mentored research project on anti-epileptic drug therapy during their fellowship training.

The award does not require past experience with research or a specific percent protected time for research but instead focuses on the mentorship and training experience for the fellow. Applicants may request funding periods of six months to one year.

Research must focus on anti-epileptic drug therapy. Clinical or basic science research may be proposed, and funds may be used to support a limited research project, or for the collection of preliminary data leading to a larger research effort.
