Esben reviews an application that I would soon submit for Open Philanthropy’s Career Transitition Funding opportunity. Although I didn’t end up receiving the funding, I do think that this episode can be a valuable resource for both others and myself when applying for funding in the future.

Head over to Apart Research’s website to check out their work, or the Alignment Jam website for information on upcoming hackathons.

A doc-capsule of the application at the time of this recording can be found at this link.
