Isaac Newton Trust


If you are happy that your application falls within the Trust's remit, please follow the instructions here to guide you through the process of your INT research grant application.

N.B. Current round emergency/bridging grants: before applying to the INT for support of a current RA whose contract ends in the near future, please check whether or not she or he is eligible for a paid extension under the University’s Contract Extension Scheme, which currently takes contracts up to the end of July 2020.  Please consult your Department Administrator or Department Research Grants Administrator. Trustees will expect this source of support to be drawn on, or at least taken into account, before a request is submitted to the Trust.

You will need to make a draft application in consultation with your Research Grants Administrator and submit this to your Head of Institution who will complete a Departmental Support Form and forward this together with the application on your behalf to INT's office.

If the application is made by the draft deadline, the Director will respond to you directly with any feedback that you might wish to attend to before preparing the final version of your application for the final application deadline.

The Trustees will decide whether on not to make an award at the relevant meeting.

You will be notified whether your application has been successful or not within days of the meeting.

If successful, your grant will usually be administered by the Research Operations Office (ROO)ROO has some really useful information and advice on how to make an effective grant application.

Many of our pages include FAQs which we update periodically.  Please tell us if you cannot find the information you require.
