During 2019, the Open Philanthropy Project recommended a total of approximately $547,800 over four years to Ethan Alley to pursue a PhD at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This is an estimate because of uncertainty around future year tuition costs, as well as uncertainty around the number of years needed to complete the degree. The funding is intended to be used for his tuition, fees, healthcare, and a living stipend during his degree program, and is part of an effort to support value-aligned and qualified early-career researchers interested in global catastrophic risks.
The grant amount was updated in January 2022 to reflect additional funding that Ethan received for self-study and pandemic preparedness projects.
