Open Philanthropy recommended a total of approximately $227,178 to enable individuals in the early stages of their careers to pursue work and study related to global catastrophic biological risks. (This is an estimate because of uncertainty around tuition costs and currency exchange rates in future years. This number may be updated as costs are finalized.)
Open Philanthropy sought the majority of applications for this funding here.
This falls within Open Philanthropy’s focus area of biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
