2020 Winner

We are very pleased to announce that the Elite Editing Thesis Write-up Scholarship for 2020 has been awarded to Ms Claudia Escobar-Vega. 

Claudia Escobar-Vega has been undertaking her PhD research ‘Understanding the next generation of leaders: An exploratory study of constructions of leadership during childhood’ at the School of Management, Operations and Marketing, University of Wollongong, under the supervision of Professor Jon Billsberry (University of Wollongong) and Dr John Molineux (Deakin University). Claudia’s research investigates children’s thinking about leaders – specifically, children’s implicit representations of leaders (Implicit Leadership Theories) – exploring the ideas and expectations that children hold about the traits, behaviours and functions of leaders. Her study involves children between 5–12 years old in a sample of 250 children from a primary school in Melbourne. This research enlightens our understanding of how future generations perceive the social role of leaders and its characteristics. Further, it helps us discover what the leaders of tomorrow will advocate, be like, or represent. The thesis is underpinned by the idea that if we want to understand the leadership of tomorrow, we need to consult the children of today. The research has been conducted with permission from the Department of Education and Training Victoria.

As usual, we had many very worthy applicants for the scholarship and we thank everyone 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.)

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.
