One scholarship is offered as a full tuition fee reduction plus £14,600 for living, research and travel costs, and two £10,000 cash awards towards living, research and travel costs.
They have been established by entrepreneur Brian Harris to provide an opportunity for students from a low-income background to study a Masters degree in History.
Brian was the first in his family to go to university. He was inspired to study history by his school teachers and was initially attracted to Royal Holloway’s beautiful Founder’s Building and its rural surroundings. After his undergraduate studies he decided to stay on to study a Masters, to boost his CV and to help him stand out from the crowd in the employment market.
Brian said: “Royal Holloway made a huge difference to my life. I was from a poor background. My father was a manual worker. I am sure that without my years of study at Royal Holloway I would never have been able to achieve so much in my life.
