Anthony Horowitz Scholarships

We are able to offer three cash scholarships to high-achieving students commencing undergraduate study in the Department of English and Creative Writing, provided to students who demonstrate their commitment to enriching the life of the Department.

The scholarships have been named after the bestselling author of the Alex Rider series, Sherlock Holmes and James Bond continuation books, detective novels, and creator of much-loved TV programmes, Midsomer Murders and Foyle’s War.

The Anthony Horowitz scholarships are worth £2000, paid in three instalments during each year of study. The scholarships are for home students enrolling in undergraduate degrees in the Department of English and Creative Writing.
