Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $15,000 to the Brown Institute for Media Innovation (the Brown Institute) at Columbia University to support rapid micro-grants for work that aims to inform the public about the COVID-19 virus. This funding enabled the Brown Institute to award five micro-grants to journalists, technologists, health researchers, data scientists, social scientists, and others.

This falls within our focus area of biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
