Future of Humanity Institute — Research Scholars Programs

Future of Humanity Institute
Award Date:
To support FHI's early career research programs.

Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $3,121,861 over two years to the Future of Humanity Institute (FHI), via the University of Oxford, to support its early career researcher programs. FHI is a multidisciplinary research institute working on global catastrophic risks at the University of Oxford.

This follows Open Philanthropy's May 2020 support and falls under its work aimed at growing the community of people doing research on humanity’s long-run future.
