Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health


Seeking Artists, Creative Professionals, & More: Join Our Global Community of Leaders in Brain Health!

Applications are now being accepted for the 2023-24 Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health program at the Global Brain Health Institute.

This is a 12-month, full-time, paid residential fellowship based at the University of California, San Francisco (USA) or Trinity College Dublin (Ireland).

The Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health at the Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI) community are engaged in a wide range of artist-led initiatives exploring brain health and dementia. Many of these initiatives combine artistic work and evidence-based research to improve our understanding of the experience of people with dementia and their carers, as well as provide opportunities to amplify narratives, change perceptions and stigma, and generate possibilities for community engagement and systemic transformation.

Arts and creativity are key to enhancing brain health as we age, and artists help us to see the world in new ways and to communicate that vision. GBHI embraces science, art, and creativity to improve our understanding of brain health and dementia, and to lead change in practice, perception, and policy.

The fellowship program provides innovative training, networking, and support to emerging leaders focused on improving brain health and reducing the impact of dementia worldwide.

Exceptional applicants from diverse backgrounds––including the arts, clinical practice, economics, public health, research, law, policy, technology, and education––who demonstrate strong leadership potential, a commitment to brain health and health care policy, as well as the ability to implement transformative solutions in local communities are encouraged to apply. 

The Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health program is an opportunity to elevate your impact and contribution to brain health.
