Isaac Newton Research Grants:  Timetable 2022-23

All decisions are made at Trustee meetings, which happen once a term on the dates given below.  Applications cannot be considered between meetings.

Emergency grants: applications for bridging an RA through to the start of a new grant, or underwriting the start-up period of a new grant, may be made in any of the three terms.  PIs may also apply on behalf of RAs whose work (whether on an existing INT grant or not) has been severely disrupted by the COVID lock-down for a short period of research to complete lost work or bridge to a new grant or employment, but please be aware that the INT has only very limited funds available to support COVID extensions.

Research Grants:  there is now ONE round per year in Michaelmas Term.

Strategic Grants:  there is one round per year in the Lent Term (preliminary).  Selected applications will then be asked to submit a full application in Easter Term (final), following the timetable set out below.
