Isaac Newton Trust

 

The Isaac Newton Trust provides financial support for high-quality research and educational projects across all subjects in the University of Cambridge.  Since its foundation in 1988, the Trust has funded many hundreds of researchers, mainly at postdoctoral level.  For details of our budget and how we spent it last year, please see our Annual Report.

The Trust has only modest resources and must be viewed as a funder of last resort.  The Trustees therefore expect all reasonable attempts to have been made by applicants to secure funding from other sources before an application is made to the Trust.  

Our grants, while generally small in comparison to those from the major external funding bodies, often create opportunities for individuals and projects that might otherwise be missed. We have helped to secure millions of pounds in grant income and donations from external bodies by providing matching funding in a supple, responsive and innovative way.

The Isaac Newton Trustees review their funding activities continually against an ever-changing background of research funding and educational needs.

Before applying:

1)  Read our Guiding Principles

2)  See the summary outline of our research grant categories

3)  Then go to How to apply
