Set up in memory of Professor Mike Walker OBE, this scholarship is available for a full or part-time postgraduate student, with Home or International fee status, studying for one of the courses listed below, within the School of Engineering, Physical and Mathematical Sciences.

Professor Mike Walker OBE is a name synonymous with the Information Security Group (ISG) at Royal Holloway. Professor Walker’s enduring academic connection with Royal Holloway began in 1966 and he successfully completed his BSc in Mathematics, before becoming the second PhD student to be supervised by Professor Fred Piper, who founded the ISG with which Professor Walker was to have a lifelong association. He obtained his PhD in 1973.

Throughout his career in industry, Professor Walker maintained his keen interest for academic research and for many years he held the Vodafone chair as Professor of Telecommunications at Royal Holloway, as part of the ISG. In 2002, Professor Walker was instrumental in founding the ISG Smart Card Centre which continues today.
