Awarded annually to undergraduate students registered at UCL at the time the Scholarship is utilised.
Awarded annually to any postgraduate student at UCL or the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine registered at the time the Fellowship is utilised.
Student proposals and requests for funding from the Trust should not exceed the maximum thresholds of: -
- £5,000 for MPhil/PhD students
- £2,500 for Masters students
- £1,250 for undergraduate students.
Due to the limited nature of the funds available, the final amount awarded to successful project proposals is at the discretion of the Trustees and may be less than that initially requested.
Regrettably, the Trustees are able to fund only a relatively small proportion of applications. In 2015, the success rate of Fellowship applications was 20%. No travelling scholarships were awarded.
Deadline for applications – Friday 29 January 2016
All applications and project proposals should demonstrate their relevance to the aims and objectives of the Trust.
Students should also demonstrate the contribution of the research to their programme of study.
Trustees are unable to consider retrospective applications.

Born in January 1800, Sir Edwin Chadwick was a leading 19th century English social reformer. For many years an assistant to Jeremy Bentham, Chadwick applied Bentham's utilitarianism to the reform of the Poor Law (1834) and to the development of public health measures, particularly in his Report on the Sanitary Conditions of the Labouring Population (1842). He was largely responsible for the passage of the Public Health Act of 1848, which established a board of health. Following his death in July 1890, his work was carried on through the Chadwick Trust, provision for which had been made in his will.
Further information on the life and achievements of Public Health Pioneer and UCL Benefactor, Sir Edwin Chadwick, can be found by visiting the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering web pages.
