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
  • 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.

Please note that there will be a single round for Research Grant applications per annum, in the Michaelmas Term.  Applications for emergency cover will continue to 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.

COVID-19: Message from Director

We are exploring with the University and other major funding partners (such as the Leverhulme Trust) what possibilities exist to support our grant holders through this period of exceptional difficulty.
