The Open Philanthropy Project recommended two grants totaling $40,000 to the International Society for Applied Ethology (ISAE) to support travel scholarships for 14 animal welfare scientists from developing nations to attend ISAE’s 2017 International Congress on applied animal behavior and welfare. We view this as a learning grant; we may consider recommending similar grants in the future if there is significant interest and evidence of positive results.

These are discretionary grants.
