Hi EA community,
Firstly, I am aware that donations aimed at improving education levels are not necessarily considered to be overly effective, so this might not be the perfect platform - but equally I am struggling to find a better suited one.
I have started looking into donating parts of my income / wealth and aside from a part which I want to focus on making the most impact, I am passionate about providing people with an opportunity to pursue higher education. What I am essentially looking for is an opportunity to extend a direct university scholarship / grant to individuals. Now I am trying to find an approach on how to identify the best opportunities (globally) where such a support would have the most impact. I am thinking about looking at education penetration levels in connection with GDP (e.g. places which have high levels of secondary education but low tertiary) but am struggling to assess whether this actually makes sense. Given that I am a complete novice I am looking for a way of finding like-minded people who have more experience or could at least help me develop a framework on how to assess this opportunity.
Therefore, I wanted to see whether someone in this community has looked further into such a cause or otherwise would know where such individuals could be found?
Thanks a lot in advance!
