How the Newton Fund works

The Fund is being delivered by 7 UK delivery partners in collaboration with funders in 17 active partnering countries. Delivery partners develop and run calls, and allocate and manage the money they receive as part of the Newton Fund. All opportunities for organisations, institutions and individuals interested in applying are listed on our funding page.

The Newton Fund in Peru is called the Newton-Paulet Fund to celebrate the Peruvian scientist and inventor Pedro Paulet who is credited with building the first liquid-fuel rocket engine in 1895.
