Eligibility Criteria

Eligibility

Before applying for this scholarship, please check your eligibility against these criteria:

  • You must be enrolled in an undergraduate degree at an Australian or New Zealand university.
  • You can be studying internally or externally.
  • You can be a domestic or international student.

Additional Information

Overview

The Capstone Editing Textbook Grant provides A$3,000 to one undergraduate student per year to assist in covering the cost of their textbooks for the duration of their degree.

As textbook prices continue to rise, many students are having to choose between buying textbooks and covering their daily living expenses. With the average cost of a textbook at Australian universities exceeding $100, and many courses requiring multiple textbooks, our Textbook Grant can seriously reduce the financial burden associated with the start of semester.

The grant is provided in the form of one $1,000 gift voucher per year for three years (so long as you remain a student) to the Co-op book store, which has stores in most states and delivers throughout Australia. The grant recipient will be free to purchase any books they feel they need for their studies.
