University of British Columbia
Award Date:
To support research on pig welfare in East Asia.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $50,186 to the University of British Columbia to enable animal welfare science student Maria Chen to produce a Masters thesis on pig welfare in East Asia.

This grant falls within Open Philanthropy’s focus area of farm animal welfare.
