All undergraduate and postgraduate students can apply for an organ scholarship, which is worth up to £1,500 every year. This is paid as a cash award in the form of a cheque at the end of each term. These scholarships are normally held for three years.
You don't need to be studying for a degree in music to apply for this scholarship but you will need to attend an audition to be considered.
Organ scholars accompany the Choir of Royal Holloway, which performs a weekly 30-minute lunchtime concert during term-time and a weekly service of choral evensong. You will also take responsibility as a conductor with the Founder's Choir.
You will receive training to help you perform these duties.
The number of scholarships awarded varies based on the quality of the candidates who apply.

Auditions for organ scholarships comprise the performance of two contrasting songs (of your own choice), sight-reading, score-reading, accompaniment of a hymn and psalm and improvisation, lasting approximately 30 minutes.
