Why we want to help Despite their predominant numbers at the undergraduate and graduate levels, women generally remain under-represented in academia. This is known as the ‘pipeline effect’, in which women pursue academic advancement post-PhD at a lower rate than men, with many declining to take up academic positions. This effect, although under-studied, appears to be the result of the highly competitive nature of academia, which adversely affects women in both their decision to embark on an academic career and their development within that career.
$5,000 for one female early career academic per year to assist with the costs associated with a research project of her choosing leading towards a publication.

What conditions are attached to acceptance of this award?
The Capstone Editing Early Career Academic Research Grant for Women is awarded on the basis of both academic merit and financial need.
The grant can be used to cover any costs related to the research project, such as conducting a field trip; purchasing books, software or equipment; hiring a translator; or performing surveys or interviews. The grant can also be used to cover expenses that most university funding does not cover, such as those related to the need of academic women to secure paid child care to assist them to meet their work responsibilities and research goals, due to the continued prevalence of traditional gender roles around caring in the home.
