Our Research Grant programmes

This information is new (02 May 2017). If you have already prepared or submitted an application for Easter Term 2017, don't worry - we will discuss any changes with you at the feedback stage.

1) Emergency Grants

bridging for salary costs / short underwriting / start-up grants

2) Project Grants

initial partner funding for new research projects; plus grants for unconventional, innovative science

3) Strategic Research Programmes and Projects

larger, institutional, perhaps interdisciplinary, programmes of strategic value to the University for the promotion of education or research;

4) Equipment grants

exceptional requests for a key research item, on a partner funding basis with other University institutions, can be applied for in this category; small equipment needs can be dealt with as part of the other categories

=========================================================

See more details of each category by clicking on the titles above.

Though it should be clear in most cases which category is most suitable for your application, please check the Comparative Table.

Don’t worry if your needs  appear to fall into more than one category – you should make only one application for any given project, so choose one category and make clear the separate types of need within that application – if in doubt, consult the Director.

=========================================================

5) Other research grants funded partly by the Trust

The Isaac Newton Trust funds research in collaboration with the Schools - our 'Joint Schools' programmes.  

For details of other grants available for Early Career Researchers including Research Fellowships partnered with external institutions and Colleges, and start-up research funding partnered with Schools – see dedicated tab.
