The Denys Holland Scholarship

Important Information for All Applicants

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.

  • 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.
