INT 'Joint Schools' programmes

A major element of the Isaac Newton Trust's research funding is carried out in collaboration with the Schools and the Pro-Vice-Chancellors. We currently have three major 'Joint Schools' projects to which INT is a major donor. 

Note that the application procedure for these ‘joint Schools’ competitions are completely separate from the Isaac Newton Research Grants - you should apply direct to the relevant Schools’ competition (not to the INT):

 

FAQs - Research Grants for ‘Joint Schools’ applicants

Can I apply for a ‘Joint Schools’ grant AND an ‘Isaac Newton Research Grant’?

Both are funded by INT, so you cannot apply for these ‘joint Schools’ grants AND for an Isaac Newton Research Grant for the same project, and would be unlikely to be funded by both routes if you present two different projects at the same time or in quick succession - you must declare any parallel application and all previous funding received from one type of scheme if you apply to the other with a different project,

If I am unsuccessful in the ‘Joint Schools’ competition, can I subsequently apply to the Isaac Newton Trust for a research grant for the same project?

Only if you have been successful in securing external matching funding since you applied to the 'joint Schools' competition.

If I am successful in the ‘Joint Schools’ competition, can I subsequently apply to the Isaac Newton Trust for a research grant for a different project? (or vice versa)

Yes, but you must declare all previous funding received from the other type of scheme if you subsequently apply with a different project.

Congratulations

to our Trustees Sir Gregory Winter, jointly awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, and Professor Dame Marilyn Strathern, on the award of the 2018 Balzan Prize for her contributions in Social Anthropology.
