(Cross­posted to LessWrong, feel free to com­ment or ask ques­tions on ei­ther post)

The Long-Term Fu­ture Fund do­ing an­other round of grants in mid-Fe­bru­ary (cur­rently ~$400k), and are open to ap­pli­ca­tions un­til Fe­bru­ary 7th. You can ap­ply here.

(Ex­cerpt from the ap­pli­ca­tion:)

We are par­tic­u­larly in­ter­ested in small teams and in­di­vi­d­u­als that are try­ing to get pro­jects off the ground, or that need less money than ex­ist­ing grant-mak­ing in­sti­tu­tions are likely to give out (i.e. less than ~$100k, but more than $10k). Here are a few ex­am­ples of pro­ject types that we’re open to fund­ing an in­di­vi­d­ual or group for (note that this list is not ex­haus­tive):
+ To spend a few months (per­haps dur­ing the sum­mer) to re­search an open prob­lem in AI al­ign­ment or AI strat­egy and pro­duce a few blog posts or videos on their ideas
+ To spend a few months build­ing a web app with the po­ten­tial to solve an op­er­a­tions bot­tle­neck at x-risk or­gani­sa­tions
+ To spend a few months up-skil­ling in a field to pre­pare for fu­ture work (e.g. microe­co­nomics, func­tional pro­gram­ming, etc).
+ To spend a year test­ing an idea that has the po­ten­tial to be built into an org.
You can find more de­tails on the kind of pro­ject we are likely to fund on the fund page: https://​app.effec­tivealtru­ism.org/​funds/​far-fu­ture If we don’t feel that we have enough in­for­ma­tion but we think your pro­ject sounds promis­ing we may be in touch for more in­for­ma­tion.
