We will edit your grant or fellowship application to the highest professional and academic standards, perfecting the language, formatting and referencing in your document, and ensuring that it fits the style guidelines required by the funding scheme.
Elite Editing understands the pressures placed on researchers under the current funding climate. Who better to entrust your grant or fellowship application to than an academic editor who understands your needs, and who can cast a fresh set of expert eyes over your application, ensuring the best possible presentation to maximise your chances of success? Our editors are familiar with all the major funding schemes in Australia, in both the government (e.g., Australian Research Council, National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia, Medical Research Future Fund) and the non-government sectors (e.g. internal university schemes, charitable foundations and philanthropic funds). Our strong professional relationships with the Australian universities, our understanding of the Australian research environment and our extensive experience in academic editing means that we are well placed to provide you with exactly the support you need to ensure your application is edited to the highest standards. Our support is second to none—no matter your discipline, we have an expert academic editor for you.
Elite Editing’s full editing service ensures that your grant or fellowship proposal is coherent, consistent and in a style compliant with the requirements of the funding scheme. Your application will be assigned to an academic editor who is an expert in your field. Many of our editors have published academic papers or held grants in their own right and are familiar with the funding schemes available to you and will be able to advise you on the appropriate academic tone and language for your application.
Your editor will check your application for logical flow and ensure that your arguments are well-articulated and coherent; ensure flawless spelling, punctuation and grammar; implement or check for professional layout and formatting according to the requirements of your funding scheme; perfect your references according to the appropriate style; and ensure that your style, language, tone and key terms are consistent throughout your application. A well-written, coherent, and professionally presented application is a key element to achieving funding success.
If you feel that your document requires only the lightest touch to polish it to perfection, we also offer a proofreading service at a lower cost. Although this service may not be appropriate for every document, in particular for those written by authors for whom English is an additional language, we are always happy to assess your application so that we can guide you towards the level of service appropriate for you.
In all our editing, Elite Editing upholds and applies the Australian Standards for Editing Practice. Therefore, you can be sure that your work will be treated with the academic integrity it deserves and requires. Naturally, we understand and respect the sensitive nature of all funding applications, and we guarantee to maintain the strictest confidentiality in all our services.
If you are looking for an academic editor for your grant application who is a specialist in your field, can cast a fresh pair of expert eyes over your writing and understands the Australian research funding environment, look no further than Elite Editing. We are simply Australia’s most experienced, professional and trusted academic editing service.

I had my 70,000-word PhD thesis edited promptly and to an exceptional standard by Elite Editing. It sped up my completion date and helped me finish on time, which is the most important thing. The service was fantastic with excellent communication; so I was informed at each stage of the process. I would recommend Elite Editing to everyone, especially those who are close to completing their thesis.

Thank you for the services provided with editing my PhD thesis. Your professionalism and high quality work were greatly appreciated and helped make this stressful time for me easier and more manageable. Quick turnaround times and a high level of service and communication made this a valuable and smooth process for me. I would definitely recommend your services to others for PhDs, manuscripts or other important writing.
