Who should apply?
The Scholars Program is for students interested in pursuing research or programmatic work focused in cognitive health, cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. It is designed for students whose career goals include cognitive health in aging.
It is open to undergraduate and graduate (master’s, PhD, MD, or equivalent) students who have a scholarly interest in aging and cognition.
What is involved?
This program is directed by Jason Karlawish, MD, professor of medicine, medical ethics and health policy, and neurology, and co-director of the Penn Memory Center.
Scholars will design a scholarly project with a team of mentors. This project will include a deliverable such as a peer reviewed publication or intervention in the community, and, as appropriate, a plan for dissemination.
Scholars will be linked to CDC’s Healthy Brain Research Network to identify collaborators, projects and datasets.
