This scholarship is available to a new full-time student with Home or International fee status studying for Holocaust Studies degree and has been established by alumni Jane Willoughby and Ingram Losner.
Royal Holloway’s coat of arms consists of the Royal Holloway shield and its surrounding elements. There are three crescents shown on the coat of arms, which are taken from Thomas Holloway’s own coat of arms. Taken from the Bedford coat of arms, the field is coloured black and gold in a chequered design, with the addition of ermine spots (feather-like symbols representing ermine tails) from the Royal Holloway coat. Placed between two black lozenges, there is a lamp of learning. Traditionally, the lozenge is worn on the arm of unmarried women or widows, which places significance on the coat of arms’ lozenges as it acts as a reminder that the colleges were founded for women. Below, the motto is displayed which is taken from the arms of Bedford College, and reads esse quam videri.
The Royal Holloway shield was created following the merger of Bedford and Royal Holloway Colleges in 1985. The shield appears (in a black and white form) on legal documents and stationery for legal reasons, along with the following: “Incorporated by Act of Parliament. Royal Holloway and Bedford New College.”
The use of the university’s identifying marks is governed by the Communications and External Relations Department.
The scholarship is offered as a tuition fee reduction of £7,300 and is available for one year of study.
