The Laura Bassi Scholarship was established in 2018 with the aim of providing editorial assistance to postgraduates and junior academics whose research focuses on neglected topics of study, broadly construed, within their disciplines. The scholarships are open to every discipline and are awarded three times per year: December, April, and August.


The value of the scholarship is remitted solely through editorial assistance as follows:

  • Master’s candidates: $750
  • Doctoral candidates: $2,500
  • Junior academics: $500


  • Be a currently enrolled master’s or doctoral candidate, or an academic in the first five years of full-time employment.
  • There are no restrictions based on institution, department, or nationality.
