Isaac Newton Trust Research Grants

  • Project Grants – initial partner funding for new research projects; plus grants for unconventional, innovative forms of research & scholarship
  • Emergency Grants – bridging for salary costs / brief underwriting / start-up grants
  • Equipment Grants – use of shared equipment, or small equipment needs as part of a specific project.   NB  the Trust will no longer offer contributions to the cost of major items of equipment.

Please note that there will be a single round for Research Grant applications per annum, in the Michaelmas Term.  Applications for emergency cover will continue to be considered at any of the Trustees’ meetings.  See:  Research Grants

2) Strategic Research Grants

In exceptional circumstances, the Trustees may consider an application for support for a large, institutional, perhaps interdisciplinary, programme of strategic value to the University for the promotion of education or research.  This would normally be in response to the possibility of securing a major grant from an external funding body.

3Other research grants funded partly by the Trust

The Isaac Newton Trust funds research in collaboration with the Schools – our ‘Joint Schools’ programmes.

INT support for Early Career Researchers includes Research Fellowships partnered with external institutions (namely the Leverhulme Trust and the Humboldt Foundation) and with Colleges, and start-up research funding partnerships with the Schools.
