Choral scholarship

Choral scholarship

Cash award worth up to £700 a year and performance opportunities for strong choral singers

The scholarships are available to undergraduate and postgraduate students studying any subject (you do not need to be applying for a music degree).

Choral scholars sing in the Choir of Royal Holloway, performing a weekly lunchtime concert, services in Chapel, recordings, tours and external concerts often with instrumentalists.

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

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