As an international research centre, the Isaac Newton Institute hosts visitors not just from within the UK and Europe but from all over the globe. While we cannot fund the travel of all participants, funding is available to enable the participation of specific groups who might otherwise not be able to attend.
Extensive funding support is available to those in need of childcare during their stay, to those with health conditions, impairments or care needs, and to visitors from DAC-listed (Development Assistance Committee) countries.
Those participants offered travel support will be notified by email and can submit a claim form and receipts for reimbursement at any time following their arrival at the INI. Participants with questions related to travel or other allocated funding can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
When planning claimable travel, this should be by the most economical means available (e.g. economy class airfare, standard class rail, etc.). Please note that we will only accept taxi claims for short journeys (i.e. from Cambridge Station to the INI or your accommodation). If travelling from London airports to Cambridge, please use standard class rail or bus/coach and not taxis, as this option is expensive and will only be accepted in exceptional circumstances when agreed by the INI in advance of your visit.
Further information regarding how to get to the INI can be found on our website, https://www.newton.ac.uk/contact/how-to-find-us/.
Participants offered Simons Fellowships and Organiser Fellowships. Those visiting from developing countries, traveling with children or with health conditions, impairments or care needs may also be eligible and will need to apply separately for funding.
If you are unable to fund your travel costs in order to attend, please speak to the programme or workshop organiser directly to make them aware and seek possible advice.
Please note that we do not offer any financial support to local Cambridge residents.
This will be stipulated in your confirmation email. You can contact email@example.com if you are unclear.

Travel funding can support only the programme participants. However, INI does have specific funding to support participants with children or other caring responsibilities. See here for more information: https://www.newton.ac.uk/information/support-services/childcare/
This will be dependent on the terms of your funding, please check your original confirmation email and contact firstname.lastname@example.org with specific queries.
Please retain all travel receipts/proof of payment, which you will need to submit with a travel claim form. Payments can be made directly to the participant by bank transfer to either an UK or international account – further clarification of your account will be required. You should receive instructions prior to your arrival, however you can also contact INI’s finance team at email@example.com.
Unfortunately, we are unable to make payments in RUB and CNY, due to the high level of funds being rejected. If you only hold accounts with this currency and are expecting to receive our financial support, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be asked by INI’s finance team to complete an expense sheet, and provide receipts/proof of payment (boarding passes are not required). Receipts and forms can be accepted electronically, as long as all text is clearly readable. If you have not already provided bank details, you will also be required to give evidence of your account to limit errors and prevent fraud. Please contact email@example.com with any questions.
