Harold and Olga Fox Fund Scholarships in the Department of Biology

Founded in 2003 out of the Estate of Harold Fox, former member of academic staff in the Department of Biology (previously Zoology). Mr Harold Fox died on 29th May 2003 bequeathing the residue of his estate to UCL.

  1. A variable number of UK/EU undergraduate scholarships, known as The Harold and Olga Fox Fund Scholarships, may be awarded in each session.

  2. The value of each scholarship is £1,000 per year and are available to self-financing candidates for entry into a full-time undergraduate degree programme within UCL's Department of Biology.

  3. Prospective full-time undergraduate UK/EU students must hold an offer of admission from UCL, which they have firmly accepted or intend to do so. Accepting UCL as an insurance choice does not satisfy the conditions relating to the Scholarships.

  4. The scholarships are competitive and are awarded to students of outstanding academic merit.

  5. The scholarships are awarded by Council on the recommendation of the Head of the Department of Biology.

  6. Scholarships are tenable for the duration of the award holder's programme of study, but may be terminated at any time should the scholarship holder's academic progress be deemed to be unsatisfactory by the Department.

  7. The number of all Fox scholarships are set at the discretion of the Department.

  8. Scholarships are payable to the student at the start of the first term.

  9. The closing date for receipt of applications by the Department is set at 15 July of the proposed year of entry.

  10. These regulations are subject to review or renewal after an initial period of three years from the award of the first scholarship.

  11. All scholarships and awards are subject to the availability of funds, and to the provisions of the UCL's General Regulations for Scholarships, Prizes, Medals and Bursaries.
