During 2019, the Open Philanthropy Project recommended a total of approximately $547,800 over four years in scholarship funds support to Ethan Alley to pursue a PhD at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The funding is intended to be used for his tuition, fees, healthcare, and a living stipend during his degree program, and is part of an effort to support value-aligned and qualified early-career researchers interested in global catastrophic risks.
The grant amount was updated in January 2022 to reflect additional funding that Ethan received for self-study and pandemic preparedness projects.
