- Stanford Existential Risks Initiative
- Award Date:
- To support student education about global catastrophic risks.
Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $1,500,000 over two years to the Stanford Existential Risks Initiative to support student education about global catastrophic risks. Stephen Luby and Paul Edwards, who together teach the course “Preventing Human Extinction,” plan to use these funds to expand their activities in this area, including student fellowships, research, career development opportunities, a speaker series, and faculty support.
This follows Open Philanthropy's December 2019 support and falls within its work on global catastrophic risks.
