Capstone Editing Textbook Grant for Undergraduates

As textbook prices continue to rise, many university 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, the Capstone Editing Textbook Grant can seriously reduce the financial burden associated with the start of semester. The $3,000 Capstone Editing Textbook Grant for Undergraduates is provided in the form of one $1,000 gift voucher per year for three years in the form of gift vouchers to the Co-op bookshop (or another bookshop chosen by the recipient).

It is aimed at first-year university students and is awarded on 1 February every year. Applications are open all year, thus most students apply in Year 12 so they can access the first $1,000 instalment for the first year of their tertiary studies. Applications can be made online here
