Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $3,121,861 over two years to the Future of Humanity Institute (FHI), via the University of Oxford, to support its early career researcher programs. FHI is a multidisciplinary research institute working on global catastrophic risks at the University of Oxford.

This follows our May 2020 support and falls under our work aimed at growing the community of people doing research on humanity’s long-run future. While we see the basic pros and cons of this support similarly to what we’ve presented in past writeups on the matter, our ultimate grant figure was set by the aggregated judgments of our committee reviewing the grant proposal.
