The scholarship is offered to international applicants for Royal Holloway Masters degrees beginning in September 2015. To be eligible for an award:

You must be classified as overseas (international) for fee purposes. If you are unsure as to what your fee status is, please refer to the College Fees and Funding pages;

You must be a US citizen or domiciled in the US. Holders of dual citizenship are accepted;

You must be able to demonstrate an exceptional academic profile and have achieved or be predicted to achieve a UK First Class Bachelor degree or overseas equivalent;

You must be able to demonstrate an outstanding personal profile as evidenced in your personal statement.


Applicants should have an offer from Royal Holloway before applying for the scholarship. Late scholarship applications may be considered if funds remain.

Applicants who submitted their application to study at Royal Holloway prior to the scholarship deadline and who are awaiting an offer may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

These scholarships are paid as a tuition fee discount and are therefore not available to applicants who are in receipt of full scholarships. Students with partial scholarships may apply provided that the value of both awards combined does not exceed the recipient's tuition-fee liability.

You will need to complete a formal application form to apply for this scholarship.
