The Capstone Editing Research Scholarship for Honours Students

A scholarship aimed at providing students with the financial resources they need to produce original, high-quality research when completing their Honours degree.


The Capstone Editing Research Scholarship for Honours Students provides up to A$3,000 (tax-free) to one student per year to assist with covering the costs associated with the research for their thesis.

The A$3,000 scholarship can be used to cover any research-related costs. This might be travelling to a conference or on a field trip, purchasing books or a computer, thesis editing, or even to put towards publication costs if there is an opportunity to publish from the thesis. As part of the application, an outline of how the funds will be used and evidence of the costs involved (such as a quotation or invoice) must be provided. The student’s supervisor must also provide a letter confirming their support for the funds to be used in the proposed way, should their student be awarded the scholarship.
