The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $100,000 to the University of Edinburgh to provide scholarships for three African veterinarians or animal scientists to complete the Masters program in Applied Animal Behaviour and Animal Welfare. We see this grant as largely devoted to building a talent pipeline for farm animal welfare research in Africa, which could account for a large number of new farm animals in the next 50 years.

This is a discretionary grant and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
