The Laura Bassi Scholarship, which awards a total of $8,000 thrice per annum, was established by Editing Press in 2018 with the aim of providing editorial assistance to postgraduates and junior academics whose research focuses on neglected topics of study, broadly construed. The scholarships are open to every discipline and the next round of funding will be awarded in April 2021:
Application deadline: 31 March 2021
Results: 25 April 2021
The scholarship values are as follows:
Master’s candidates: $750
Doctoral candidates: $2,500
Junior academics: $500
There is also a $10 application fee, but there is a fee waiver if this would cause undue financial hardship.
All currently enrolled master’s and doctoral candidates are eligible to apply, as are academics in the first five years of full-time employment. Applicants are required to submit a completed application form along with their CV through the application portal by the relevant deadline.
