The RAAIS OpenMined Grants

About the Grants:

We're very excited to announce the very first round of RAAIS OpenMined Grants to support full and part-time work on the project’s open-source codebase. OpenMined is an open-source community focused on researching, developing, and promoting tools for secure, privacy-preserving, value-aligned artificial intelligence.

We are funding 3 grants each worth £2,000 per month for 3 months. If you cannot work full-time (e.g. you’re a student), you may instead request to work half-time for 6 months (£1,000 per month). Recipients of the RAAIS OpenMined Grants will get to choose between 3 use-cases to focus on. These are commissioned by the United Nations Privacy Task Team, the Broad Institute at MIT and Harvard, and the University of Oxford. If you would like to be considered for a grant, you can apply at the bottom of this page.
