Research degree scholarships and funding
As a renowned world-class institution, Royal Holloway is committed to supporting and developing the next generation of researchers.
We recognise that funding is often an obstacle for talented students so we have developed Royal Holloway scholarships worth £4million available to research students. College scholarship funding is often used to help more students participate in UK Research Council (RCUK) or other schemes, in which case there is a single scholarship application process. The College also jointly funds scholarships with external partners.
To find out more about the College scholarships available in your discipline, which aren't listed below, the application process and deadlines please consult the web pages of the relevant department or its Director of Graduate Studies.
College scholarships are usually awarded for three years for full-time students or six years pro-rata for part-time student.
We also offer a host of awards from the major UK Research Councils.
We have a number of international research partners offering joint scholarships to international MPhil and PhD students.

Our sports scholarships are available to postgraduate research students too.
Our choral and organ scholarships are open to postgraduate research students.
