Editex has undergone a major restructure and change in its business model during 2016. The scholarship will next be offered in the second half of 2017, for award to a student completing their thesis during 2018.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.

 

The Editex 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 assist them to concentrate solely on the task of writing their thesis. The scholarship is available to postgraduate students of selected universities in the United Kingdom, United States and Canada which have:

  • the Editex scholarship listed in their scholarship pages, or
  • an ongoing relationship with Editex regarding the provision of academic writing resources and editing services.

For students who do not hold another scholarship, the Editex Thesis Write-up Scholarship pays a stipend of:

  • United Kingdom: £333.33 per fortnight for six fortnights (£2,000 in total)
  • USA and Canada: US$500 per fortnight for six fortnights ($3,000 in total)

For students who do hold another scholarship, the Editex Thesis Write-up Scholarship pays a stipend of:

  • United Kingdom: £200 per fortnight for six fortnights (£1,200 in total)
  • USA and Canada: US$300 per fortnight for six fortnights ($1,800 in total)

Eligibility

Students must be enrolled full time in a research degree (Masters or PhD) at an eligible university in the US, UK or Canada.  Eligible universities are those who have our scholarship listed on their website or who utilise Editex on an ongoing basis. Part-time students are eligible to apply for the scholarship only in circumstances where the applicant is able to demonstrate heavy carer commitments or a medical condition that precludes them from studying full time. Students may be either internal or external students. Both international and domestic students are eligible to apply. (Any stipend award for international students will be subject to confirmation of a full fee scholarship for the corresponding period.) Students who hold another scholarship may apply, but will receive the lower amount as outlined above. The student must not engage in any forms of paid employment for the duration of the scholarship (unless Editex is notified of any special circumstances that would prohibit this at the time of application). The student must work on writing their thesis full time (a minimum of 35 hours per week) for the duration of the scholarship (i.e. they must have completed the research stage). Employees of Editex and their family members are not eligible for the scholarship.

Application process

  • Applications will open on 1 July and close on 30 November each year.
  • The scholarship will be awarded prior to 31 December.

The successful applicant can specify a start date for the scholarship that is any time within the following 12 months. The application form must be completed online on our Elite Editing website. (Applications will not be accepted by email or post.) Editex will assess each application based on the academic merit of the research being undertaken and the financial situation of the student. The successful applicant will be chosen at the sole discretion of Editex.
