The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a total of approximately $570,000 over three years in flexible support to enable five early-career people to pursue work and study related to global catastrophic biological risks.This is an estimate because of uncertainty around future year tuition costs and currency exchange rates. We sought applications for this funding here and ultimately elected to support a cohort of interns, masters candidates, and PhD students. Recipients include:
- Noga Aharony, internship, Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security
- Cassidy Nelson, PhD student, Oxford University
- Alexander Norman, internship, Centre for Pathogenic Evolution at Cambridge University and Church Laboratories at Harvard University
- Georgia Ray, masters student, George Mason University
- Caleb Withers, masters student, Georgetown University
This falls within our focus area of biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
Update: In October 2018, we added $55,000 to the original award amount. The “grant amount” above has been updated to reflect this.
