We are happy to announce that applications are now open for EA Global Austin 2024 (EAGxAustin)! Apply and see more here. Applications will close at 11:59pm UTC on March 31, 2024. 
 

Who should apply?

EAGx Austin is intended both for individuals new to the Effective Altruism (EA) movement and those already professionally engaged with EA, and will cover a diverse range of high-impact cause areas. We’re especially excited to bring together individuals from Texas or the southern or central U.S. regions. We’ll give priority to applicants from these areas, but also welcome anyone in the U.S. or internationally who could provide or gain value from the event to apply. If you’re uncertain about applying, we would encourage you to err on the side of applying!
 

Event content:

Because one primary goal of the conference is to help people improve their networks and connections, we encourage attendees to prioritize scheduling 1-on-1s with other attendees, which is easy to do via our event app, Swapcard.


 

There will also be:

  • Plenty of talks and workshops on high-impact careers, philanthropy, and important causes like AI safety policy, technical AI safety, climate change, global health, biosecurity, animal welfare, priorities research, communicating and promoting altruism, and more.
  • Office hours (Q&As) with speakers
  • Group meetups and speed-networking around topics, industries, and attendee demographics
  • Job listings in the event app
  • We may have a small career fair or fair to showcase visiting nonprofits, pending level of interest

A detailed agenda will be available closer to the conference via our event app. 

 

Cost and Financial support:

The default ticket price is $100. Tickets are free for students. Discount and free ticket options are also available to anyone else for whom the regular ticket price is too high for their budget.

If you need any additional support with your application or have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at Austin@eaglobalx.org
