Isaac Newton Trust

 

1) Research Grants

This category now incorporates three previous categories of INT grants:

  • Project Grants - initial partner funding for new research projects; plus grants for unconventional, innovative forms of research & scholarship
  • Emergency Grants - bridging for salary costs / brief underwriting / start-up grants
  • Fellowship Support - providing matching funds or consumables for certain fellowships
  • Equipment Grants - use of shared equipment, or small equipment needs as part of a specific project.   NB  the Trust will no longer offer contributions to the cost of major items of equipment.

There will be a single round for Project or Equipment Grants per annum, in the Michaelmas Term. 

Applications for Emergency Grants and Fellowship Support will be considered at any of the Trustees' meetings. 

See:  Research Grants

2) Strategic Research Grants

In exceptional circumstances, the Trustees may consider an application for support for a large, institutional, perhaps interdisciplinary, programme of strategic value to the University for the promotion of education or research.  This would normally be in response to the possibility of securing a major grant from an external funding body.

3) Other research grants funded partly by the Trust

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

INT support for Early Career Researchers includes Research Fellowships partnered with external institutions (namely the Leverhulme Trust and the Humboldt Foundation) and with Colleges, and start-up research funding partnerships with the Schools.
