Open Philanthropy just re-opened applications for our early-career funding for individuals interested in improving the long-term future.

Apply here by January 21st, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time.

From the description:

This program aims to provide support - primarily in the form of funding for graduate study, but also for other types of one-off career capital-building activities - for early-career individuals who want to pursue careers that help improve the long-term future and who don’t qualify for our existing program focused on careers related to biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.

See the program page for further information about the funding criteria, the application process, and how this opportunity relates to other Open Philanthropy programs.

Please contact with any questions/suggestions.

Is there a strong reason to close applications in January? 

I'm only familiar with the deadlines for economics graduate school, but for that you get decisions back from graduate school in February-March along with the funding package. Therefore, it would be useful to be able to apply for this depending on the funding package you receive (e.g. if you are fully funded you don't need to apply, but if you are given little or no funding, it would be important to apply) .

Does Open Phil have any plans to re-open applications for early-career funding for work on biosecurity, as well (sometime in the next 12 months, say)?
