Editage Grant for Young Researchers

“Opportunity doesn’t ask you your age.”

Getting funding for your first research project is one of the hallmarks in every researcher's career. However, young and early career researchers often struggle to secure research funds, especially for novel research topics.

To address this gap and to ensure an inclusive and diverse research community, Cactus Communications provided research grants to said researchers, under our author services brand, Editage.

Project Details

We offer support to such young researchers through grants. In previous years, we have provided research, travel, and editing service grants that have aided close to 40 young researchers. The latest round of research grant support was started in November 2022.
