Hi Alex! You seem like a smart and motivated individual, and I appreciate you taking the time to apply on Manifund. Despite this, I'm not super excited by this specific proposal; here are some key skepticisms to funding this out of my personal regrantor budget:
I'm suspicious of funding more "research into the right thing to do". I would be more excited to directly fund "doing the right thing" -- in this case, directly convincing university admins to fund AI or bio safety efforts.
As a cause area, I view IIDM a bit like crypto (bear with me): many promising ideas, but execution to date has been quite lackluster. Which is also to say, execution seems to be the bottleneck and I'm more excited to see people actually steering institutions well rather than coming up with more ideas on how to do so. As they say in startup-land, "execution is everything".
My guess is that as a university student, your world has mostly consisted of university institutions, leading you to overvalue their impact at large (compared to other orgs like corporations/startups, governments, and nonprofits). I would be much more excited to see proposals from you to do things outside the university orbit.
I would also guess that getting university admins on board will be quite difficult?
Thanks again for your application!
