Our Research Grant programmes

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.

 

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 forms of research & scholarship

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, or unavoidable costs associated with use of shared equipment; small equipment needs can be dealt with as part of the other categories

5) 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 (Leverhulme Trust, Humboldt Foundation, Swiss National Science Foundation) and with Colleges, and start-up research funding partnerships with the Schools.
