General Description

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 University College London. The scholarship is worth £9,000 per annum 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 stipend. Scholarships are for one year in the first instance, but will be renewed subject to satisfactory progress, for up to a total of three years.


This scholarship is open to students holding an offer of admission to UCL for full-time undergraduate study in any department.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate that they have broad interests and intend to be actively involved in and contribute to the life of the university. Applications from students aged 25 or below at the time of commencing their studies will be preferred. The scholarship is awarded on the basis of financial hardship, subject to applicants demonstrating their intention to play a full part in extra-curricular activities of UCL and the Students Union.
