Organ scholarship

Organ scholarship

Cash award worth up to £1,500 a year for skilled organists

These scholarships are available to undergraduate and postgraduate students studying any subject (you don't need to be applying for a music degree). 

Organ scholars accompany the Choir of Royal Holloway, performing a weekly lunchtime concert 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 with these duties.

The cash award is paid at the end of each term and scholarships are normally held for three years.

The number of scholarships awarded each year varies based on the quality of the candidates who apply.
