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

AES funding may be used for speakers’ transportation and lodging, participation by junior investigators and trainees, the publication of proceedings, and other direct costs, but may not be used for indirect costs.

Applications for workshop funding are reviewed by the AES Research and Training Council, and the number and amount of awards made each year are contingent upon available funds.

Preference will be given to workshops that include AES members as participants or attendees, that describe plans to support and encourage the participation of trainees and junior investigators, and that allow open attendance rather than participation by invitation only. 

Applications for workshops held outside the United States are generally expected to use AES funds to support participants from the United States, to the extent appropriate and feasible.
