The Capstone Editing Carer’s Travel Grant for Academic Women
Why we want to help A major requirement of academics is that they undertake research-related travel. Academics are expected to attend and present their work at interstate and international conferences regularly, and certain disciplines involve extensive fieldwork, sometimes in remote locations. This travel costs both time and money, with academics at times even choosing to fund their own travel due to the intense pressure for career advancement through research and publication. For academics with young children, time spent away from home is often difficult and expensive to organise. This has a greater effect on female academics: as women across Australia already know, in general, mothers carry the burden of either caring directly for children, or for organising their care by others.

The Capstone Editing Conference Travel Grant for Postgraduate Research Students
The purpose of attending the conference should be to assist with the student’s research or professional development. The student does not necessarily have to be presenting a paper or poster at the conference to be eligible to apply for the grant, though it is preferred.

The Capstone Editing Early Career Academic Research Grant for Women
How we can help For early career women academics, there are often costs associated with working longer hours to meet both their varied responsibilities and their research goals. While working outside of normal hours is not a practice that we encourage, it is one that is widely acknowledged (and sometimes even expected) to occur in academia. Often a woman’s additional childcare responsibilities, for example, are a barrier to her performing this additional work, putting her at a disadvantage in comparison to colleagues without those same responsibilities. In offering this grant, Capstone Editing acknowledges the greater difficulties faced by female academics in developing and continuing their careers and seeks to ameliorate this situation with practical, financial support.  

The Capstone Editing Grant for Professional Thesis Editing
We are thrilled to add the Capstone Editing Grant for Professional Thesis Editing to our program. The grant provides free thesis editing for one Masters student and one PhD student per year. There is no limit on the amount of words in the thesis that we will edit (so long as the thesis meets the students’ departments’ word limit). It just needs to be a thesis written for a postgraduate degree for an Australian or New Zealand university.

The Capstone Editing Laptop Grant for Postgraduate Coursework Students
The grant comes in the form of a A$3,000 gift voucher for Harvey Norman. The recipient can purchase any computer or laptop they choose and use any remaining funds to purchase software and computer accessories.

The Capstone Editing Mid-Career Academic Research Grant for Women
$5,000 for one mid-career academic per year to assist with seed funding for an innovative research project that may gather preliminary data and lead to the development of a research council funding application.

The Capstone Editing Research Scholarship for Honours Students
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, or even to put towards HELP fees. As part of the application, an outline of how the funds are to be used and evidence of the costs involved (such as a quotation or invoice) must be provided. The student’s supervisor will also need to provide a letter confirming their support for the funds to be used in the proposed way, should their student be awarded the scholarship.  

The Capstone Editing Scholarship for Indigenous High School Students
Capstone Editing seeks to make a modest contribution towards this target through our Scholarship for Indigenous High School Students. The scholarship will initially be available in South Australia, the home state of Dr Lines, but will hopefully be expanded to other states in the future.

The Capstone Editing Textbook Grant for Undergraduates
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 HASANZ Scholarship Programme
Workplace health and safety is an interesting and rewarding career choice. The HASANZ Health and Safety Professionals Survey 2017 showed that 91% find their profession rewarding. The Safesearch WHS Remuneration Survey 2018 shows the average yearly remuneration for health and safety advisers in New Zealand is $100,000. However, demand for qualified health and safety advisers outstrips supply in many areas. And New Zealand’s health and safety workforce is ageing – our Survey indicated that more than 50% of health and safety professionals are over 50 years old. The HASANZ Scholarship Programme is one way to address the capability and capacity gaps in New Zealand’s health and safety workforce and increase the supply of qualified, competent health and safety professionals for businesses to call on.
