Abbey '1 UCL' Excellence/Endeavour Awards: nomination deadline extension

30 April 2009

The deadline for nominations for the 2009 Abbey '1 UCL' Excellence/Endeavour Awards has been extended until 5 May 2009.

The awards, funded by Abbey, aim to foster the notion of UCL as a community and to highlight, celebrate and reward outstanding achievement or endeavour by current UCL students in a non-academic field. Activities might be in areas such as sport, music, theatre, fundraising, volunteering or mentoring.  If you know a UCL student who has shown outstanding achievement or endeavour in a non-academic field relating to UCL as a community, please consider nominating them.

Up to ten awards are available in total and nominees must be current (2008/09) UCL students, enrolled for study or research at any level.

Each award consists of a donation of £1,000 on behalf of the selected student(s) to a single organisation of the award holder's choice. There only restrictions on the organisations to which the award may be donated is that they must not be party political, and awards may not be donated to an individual.

A condition of acceptance of the award is that successful nominees will cooperate in any reasonable publicity activity which UCL or Abbey may wish to attach to the award.

Candidates may be nominated by UCL students or staff by submitting a '1 UCL' nomination form.

Nominations should be emailed to scholarships@ucl.ac.uk or posted to:
UCL Scholarships Office
The Registry
University College London
Gower Street

A selection panel consisting of UCL staff, a Student Union member, and an Abbey representative will consider all nominations received and identify up to ten students to receive the award.

Successful candidates can expect to be notified in June/July, and will be asked to indicate which organisation is to benefit from the £1,000 donation made on their behalf. Only successful nominees will be notified.
