Royal Holloway Principal’s Masters Scholarship 2023


Applications for the Royal Holloway Principal’s Masters scholarship will also be considered from students taking the Royal Holloway Pre-Masters Programme, and the grade requirement will be 70% overall. Students are shortlisted based on their academic excellence.

Today’s Royal Holloway is formed from two colleges founded by two social pioneers, Elizabeth Jesser Reid and Thomas Holloway. They were among the first places in Britain where women could access higher education. Bedford College, in London, opened its doors in 1849, and Royal Holloway College’s stunning Founder’s Building was unveiled by Queen Victoria in 1886 – it’s still the focal point of the campus.

Their scholarships provide a cash award or a reduction in tuition fees for successful applicants. They are awarded competitively, usually based on your scholarship application statement and academic achievements. We also offer scholarships aimed specifically at underrepresented groups in higher education.
