Elite Editing Thesis Write-up Scholarship

Since 2013 Elite Editing has awarded an annual thesis write-up scholarship.

The Elite Editing Thesis Write-up Scholarship provides financial assistance for one postgraduate student per year for a period of 12 weeks to free them from other forms of employment and allow them to concentrate solely on the task of writing their thesis.


For students who do not hold another scholarship, the Elite Editing Thesis Write-up Scholarship pays a stipend of $1,000 per fortnight for six fortnights ($6,000 in total), tax free.

For students who do hold another scholarship, the Elite Editing Thesis Write-up Scholarship pays a stipend of $600 per fortnight for six fortnights ($3,600 in total), tax free.
