The Newton Fund Impact Scheme (NFIS) is delivered by the British Council in partnership with UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) on behalf of all Newton Fund delivery partners.

NFIS provides funding for current and previously funded Newton Fund grantees with the aim of maximising impact from Newton Fund activities. 

The collaboration between UK and partner countries can build upon the original partnership or form a new partnership.

Grants will not be provided to support the continuation of existing activities. Applicants should make a strong case to demonstrate that proposals consist of new activities focusing primarily on impact realisation.
