How the Newton Fund works
The Fund is being delivered by 15 UK delivery partners in collaboration with funders in 18 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.
