Our EA and In-Depth Fellowships have started - our next rounds will take place in May or June.
What is Effective Altruism?
Effective altruism is a philosophy and social movement that advocates using evidence and reasoning to determine the most effective ways to benefit others.
What are some of our focus areas?
We focus on a wide range of different cause areas and global issues, with a particular focus on global catastrophic risks, animal welfare, and global health and poverty.

Who is EA Cambridge?
We're a group of people, primarily based in the Cambridge UK region, who try to think hard about how to help others the most, and what actions we can take with our careers, donations and political choices to enact these changes. Many members of the community currently study at or have graduated from the University of Cambridge, although we also have community members who've studied at other universities and in other countries, or are working in Cambridgeshire.
