Grise for Aphasia Leadership Application
Our mission:
Grise for Aphasia recognizes the lack of knowledge and attention that surrounds aphasia—a neurological language disorder harming speech production. Therefore, we plan to not only make an effort to increase engagement and interest in STEM on a general scope, but we aim to directly positively influence the aphasia population in conjunction with established organizations and industry-leading experts.

We are supporting those with aphasia through various projects, particularly with our current main initiative, the buddy system. Through this, we pair students with someone who has aphasia/their family for a period of time for you to meet with on a consistent basis. It's an insightful way for those with aphasia to gain support from you and have more fun social interactions during this time of large isolation for them (currently remote, but can be in-person once appropriate).

We may also produce tailored videos for people with aphasia in partnership with clinicians and aphasia organizations. As a baseline, we aim to raise awareness (through workshops, providing opportunities to get involved in the aphasia and STEM communities, etc.).


Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.


We can't wait to hear from you!
