Isaac Newton Trust


The Trustees of the Isaac Newton Trust have agreed a number of guiding principles for their response to problems resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • INT will collaborate with the University and its other major co-funder, the Leverhulme Trust, to align our response to those of these other bodies;  most of 'our' postdoc researchers are on the University's payroll
  • INT will prioritise its current grant holders
  • INT will respond to other exceptional cases of need if its resources allow.

If you are not a current INT grant holder and your project has been badly affected by COVID-19

If the grant end date falls before 30 September 2021, and particularly if an early career postdoc employed on your project would otherwise be unemployed at the end date, you might apply for a short emergency bridging grant, equivalent to the time lost, in the normal INT Research Grant competition in Easter Term.
