Funding research for international students

We cooperate with a growing number of international organisations to offer joint scholarships to talented international MPhil/PhD students.

Our international research partners include the Chevening Secretariat, the US-UK Fulbright Commission, the Indonesia-UK DIKTI Scholarship Programme, FIDERH Banco de México and the SAID Foundation.

Pakistan Higher Education Commission

In collaboration with the Pakistan Higher Education Commission (HEC), we’re offering four joint Royal Holloway-HEC PhD Scholarships. They are in a wide range of academic disciplines that we offer.

Each scholarship will last for three years, consisting of a tuition fee waiver provided by Royal Holloway, and an annual maintenance allowance of £9,000, including a return flight to and from the UK, provided by the Pakistan Higher Education Commission.

Applications for the joint Royal Holloway-HEC PhD Scholarship are made directly to the Pakistan Higher Education Commission.
