Lex Academic Scholarships

Lex Academic help academics and PhD students to place their work with leading journals and prestigious publishing houses.

Lex Academic Scholarships

At Lex Academic, we recognise the important contribution of dyslexic individuals to academic research and broader society. Often meeting with impatience and discouragement in mainstream education, we believe that exceptionally promising dyslexic students deserve investment and support, helping them to realise the potential of their ideas. To this end, we have established three Lex Academic Scholarships to nurture talented researchers with dyslexia.

Lex Academic Humanities Scholarship

Our first award, the Lex Academic Humanities Scholarship, is granted annually to a student studying any of the following humanities subjects to postgraduate level: Art History; Classics; English; History; Modern Languages; Music; and Philosophy. In addition to a grant of £500, the Lex Academic Humanities Scholar will receive gratis editorial services for their thesis or dissertation. This award is advertised annually in January, with decisions being made by the end of March.

Lex Academic STEM Scholarship

Our second award, the Lex Academic STEM Scholarship, is granted annually to a student studying any STEM subject (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics). In addition to a grant of £500, the Lex Academic STEM Scholar will receive gratis editorial services for their thesis or dissertation. This award is advertised annually in January, with decisions being made by the end of March.

Lex Academic Social Sciences Scholarship

Our third award, the Lex Academic Social Sciences Scholarship, is granted annually to a student studying any social science. In addition to a grant of £500, the Lex Academic Social Sciences Scholar will receive gratis editorial services for their thesis or dissertation. This award is advertised annually in January, with decisions being made by the end of March.

Eligibility

To be eligible to apply for these awards, you must hold an offer of admission for a postgraduate degree with a thesis or extended project component.

You must have been diagnosed with dyslexia by an educational psychologist to be eligible for an award.

“Lex Academic’s copyediting and indexing is brilliant. They took so much time with my manuscript—bonding with the subject matter and creating both flow and meaning. I have been so lucky to find them. I would choose Lex Academic for all my projects. They are champions!”
