The Denys Holland Scholarship
Scholarship Name The Denys Holland Scholarship
Scholarship amount £9,000
Nationality Any
Scholarship Deadline 6 July 2018

Professor Denys Holland, in whose memory the Denys Holland Fund was created via donations from his students, was a sociable, compassionate man. A Professor of Law and Dean of Students, one of his principal concerns was the welfare and fulfilment of students under his care. His admissions policy for the Faculty of Laws was aimed at a broad range of students who would enter fully into college life.

The Denys Holland Scholarship aims to support undergraduate students from any country, who without the support of the scholarship would be unable to secure the funding required to study at UCL, and whom can demonstrate their intention to make full use of the activities offered by UCL and the Student Union.

Eligibility requirements

Applicants should be:

  • holding a valid UCL Student Number or UCAS Application Number
  • holding an offer of admission to UCL for full-time undergraduate study commencing in September 2018, in any department;
  • in financial need;
  • able to demonstrate that they have broad interests and intend to be actively involved in and contribute to the life of the university;
  • preferably aged 25 or below at the time of commencing their studies.

Selection criteria

The scholarship is awarded on the basis of financial need, subject to applicants demonstrating their intention to play a full part in extracurricular activities of UCL and the Students Union.

Value: benefits and duration

The scholarship is worth £9,000 per year for three years, subject to satisfactory academic progress and scholars may choose to use all or part of the scholarship to cover fees. Any remainder is paid to the scholar as a maintenance award.

The scholarship may be held alongside other grants, bursaries, awards or scholarships, provided annual total funding does not exceed the cost of fees plus a reasonable sum for maintenance in any one year (as determined by UCL).

Applications deadline and procedure

The deadline for Denys Holland applications is: Friday, 6 July 2018 at 5pm (UK time).
