2022 scholarship awardee

Elite Editing is very pleased to announce that the Elite Editing Thesis Write-up Scholarship for 2022 has been awarded to Ms. Neha Lalchandani.

Neha is a third year PhD student in the School of Public Health at the University of Adelaide, where she is supervised by Dr Shona Crabb, Dr Clare Hume, and Professor Caroline Miller. Her project ‘(Unwrapped) food for thought: Exploring a potential nexus between lowering waste and healthy eating in South Australian public preschool and primary school settings’ involves a mixed-methods research design aiming to explore how schoolchildren’s dietary habits can be improved while also impacting the environment positively. Neha hopes that her PhD will provide insights on whether the environmental agenda can be leveraged to improve children’s food consumption patterns in the Australian school food context, and to use these results to inform future policies and practices in this area.

This year’s choice was again difficult, with many excellent applicants for the scholarship, and many still with financial hardship caused by Covid-19. Our thanks and best wishes to all who applied.

Scholarship description

The Elite Editing 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 allow them to concentrate solely on the task of writing their thesis.

For students who do not hold another scholarship, the Elite Editing Thesis Write-up Scholarship pays a stipend of $1,000 per fortnight for six fortnights ($6,000 in total), tax free.

For students who do hold another scholarship, the Elite Editing Thesis Write-up Scholarship pays a stipend of $600 per fortnight for six fortnights ($3,600 in total), tax free.

Eligibility

Students must be enrolled full time in a research degree (Masters or PhD) at an Australian or New Zealand university.

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 in this case would only be awarded a stipend of $600 per fortnight for six fortnights ($3,600 in total), tax free.

For students who do not hold another scholarship, the Elite Editing Thesis Write-up Scholarship pays a stipend of $1,000 per fortnight for six fortnights ($6,000 in total), tax free.

The student must not engage in any forms of paid employment for the duration of the scholarship (unless Elite Editing 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 Elite Editing and their family members are not eligible for the scholarship.

Application process

Applications will open on 1 January and close on 30 June each year.

The scholarship will be awarded prior to 31 July each year.

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: https://www.eliteediting.com.au/scholarship-application-form/. (Applications will not be accepted by email or post.)

Elite Editing 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 Elite Editing.
