Effective Altruism @ UMD Intro Fellowship Sign Up
Effective Altruism at UMD is part of a philosophy and social movement that focuses on using evidence and reasoning to determine the most effective ways to benefit others and improve the world. We hope to inspire people to take into account which choice would have the most positive impact when making decisions about their careers, volunteering, and donations. We will discuss ways to determine which causes to prioritize, philosophical questions about what it means to do the most good, and learn more about causes as diverse as global health, AI safety and alignment, poverty, animal welfare, nuclear war, climate change, and future pandemics.

Our fellowship will cover 8 weeks of topics, with readings that take ~1.5 hours before each session. There are 2 different curriculums we are running this semester, which take different approaches to the same content.
The traditional curriculum can be found at https://ter.ps/EAtopics2022
Our new curriculum targeted at systems thinkers can be found at https://ter.ps/EAsystems2

Please apply by Feb 15, 2023.
