Isaac Newton Trust / Wellcome Trust ISSF / University of Cambridge Joint Research Grants Scheme


Deadline for applications: Sunday 1 November

Further information: here


This scheme is aimed at newly independent principal investigators. The primary aim of the scheme is to provide support for newly appointed individuals to allow them to develop projects which will lead to a full application for external funding (e.g. project grant from a Research Council or equivalent). The scheme is open to newly independent principal investigators appointed between 1st January 2017 and 31st December 2020.  The scheme is primarily aimed at individuals whose research falls within the Wellcome Trust remit, which includes its Science stream.


Budget available: Research grants of up to £85,000 in total are available under this scheme for up to two years, for directly incurred and allocated costs only. Please note that your department is expected to provide one third of the project cost (of a total project cost of up to £85k). Please send your application and supporting documents to Paulina Pieprzyca. Your project should commence by February 2021; and it has to end before February 2023.
