- Future of Research
- Award Date:
- For general support.
The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $150,000 to Future of Research (FoR) for general support. This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on scientific research.
Open Philanthropy previously provided FoR with a two-year, $300,000 grant in 2016 to support the nonprofit's mission to “improve the scientific research enterprise.” Since that time, Open Philanthropy has devoted less attention to directly funding science policy and infrastructure work than anticipated, and does not feel that it is in a position to properly evaluate FoR’s work. This award therefore represents an “exit grant” to FoR while they look for other sources of funding.
