The Capstone Editing Textbook Grant for Undergraduates

A grant aimed at easing the burden placed on students by the high cost of textbooks and ensuring they have the resources they need to succeed in their studies.


The Capstone Editing Textbook Grant provides A$3,000 to one undergraduate student per year to assist in covering the cost of their textbooks for the duration of their degree. 

As textbook prices continue to rise, many students are having to choose between buying textbooks and covering their daily living expenses. With the average cost of a textbook at Australian universities exceeding $100, and many courses requiring multiple textbooks, our Textbook Grant can seriously reduce the financial burden associated with the start of semester.

The grant is provided in the form of one $1,000 gift voucher per year for three years (so long as you remain a student) to a book store of your choice. The grant recipient will be free to purchase any books they feel they need for their studies.

Capstone Editing also supports students by providing high-quality thesis editing and academic editing. Please consider using Capstone Editing for your academic editing needs if you continue in your studies to complete an Honours thesis or further postgraduate studies.
