Two letters of support are required.
We are looking for Atlantic Fellows who demonstrate leadership potential and have a support network beyond the Global Brain Health Institute. Specifically, GBHI seeks applicants with robust support networks committed to the future career and ambition of the applicant on return to the Fellow's home community. These support networks may include current and past partners, institutions, organizations, employers and groups.
Therefore, at least one (1) letter of support should be from a current employer, institution, organization or group you have engaged with previously. We expect this letter to articulate support for the application and specifically address the applicant’s leadership potential. In addition, these letters should demonstrate a long-term commitment to supporting the applicant and their work after completion of the Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health program.

The letter writers will receive an automated email with link to submit the applicant’s letter of support immediately after the application is submitted. Applicants should independently communicate with their writers as to when they should expect to receive the link and confirm that they have received the link after the application has been submitted.
