BrainHealth Scholars

2024 Todd Platt BrainHealth Scholars

The 2023 Todd Platt BrainHealth Scholars gather together at the start of the program.

Pictured is our 2023 class of Todd Platt BrainHealth Scholars. The program is named for Todd Platt, recipient of BrainHealth’s 2023 Legacy Award.

The BrainHealth Scholars Program is an in-person educational internship in Dallas, Texas. Undergraduate and graduate students from all colleges, universities and any field of study are eligible to apply.
Over four weeks, scholars explore the importance of brain health and learn underlying science and everyday brain-healthy practices. They also have the option to join our landmark study, The BrainHealth Project. The summer program culminates in a team presentation, after which scholars who attended all sessions are awarded a $1,000 stipend.
The 2024 Todd Platt BrainHealth Scholar program is made possible thanks to a generous gift from Candy and Ike Brown.
