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 in collaboration with Colleges for whom the full cost of a JRF would be prohibitive, but who may have access to partial funding.

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;
