Isaac Newton Trust


About the INT/College Junior Research Fellowship Programme

The Trustees of the Isaac Newton Trust are delighted to offer support for Junior Research Fellowships (JRFs) in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences to enable Colleges for whom the full cost of a JRF would be prohibitive, but who may have access to partial funding, to bring together the funds needed to advertise and elect a Junior Research Fellow.

Please note:

  • Newton Trust JRF awards are made to Colleges, and are not made direct to the Fellow subsequently selected by the College;
  • the Isaac Newton Trust does not accept applications direct from prospective JRFs;
  • the Trust plays no part in the selection of Fellows; the selection is made by the College advertising the post. 

What the Trust provides:

  • eligible Colleges whose applications are successful will be offered a flat-rate contribution of £15,000 per annum towards a Junior Research Fellowship, for up to three years;
  • Colleges with non-standard alumni bases may apply for a discretionary additional grant of £5,000 per annum;
  • the Fellowship should be advertised in the range of subjects falling within the general area of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
