Isaac Newton Trust


NOTE:  INT will updating its policy and procedures in light of the Government's most recent measures re the COVID-19 pandemic by the end of January 2021

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

The Trustees are aware that other projects have lost significant research time and may be seeking support for continuing a project, beyond its current end date.  If your project has been badly affected by COVID-19, the grant end date falls before 31 December 2020, 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 Michaelmas Term.


The INT office is currently closed, but staff are continuing to work from home, so please contact us by email if you have any questions or comments.
