UK:Harold and Olga Fox Scholarship For Overseas Students

The Harold and Olga Fox Scholarship fund has been set up thanks to a recent bequest from the estate of Professor Harold Fox to Biological Sciences students. We award one Scholarship per year to overseas (full fee-paying) students applying for the BSc degree programme in Biological Sciences. The Harold and Olga Fox Scholarships will pay £5000 towards overseas fees in each of the three years of the Scholar's course, subject to satisfactory academic progress.

To apply for one of these Scholarships you must hold an offer of admission to study towards one of our 3-year undergraduate BSc degrees.

To apply for one of the Scholarships please submit with your application:

  • Full Curriculum Vitae
  • Covering letter in your own handwriting explaining why you wish to study at UCL.
  • An essay in English (approximately 1000 words) on any biological subject of your choice (eg. The importance of Biology in the 21st century.)

Email entries are not permitted.

Entries will be awarded according to academic merit. The committee’s decision is final. The deadline for applications is 15th July (or the first working day following the 15th if the deadline falls on the weekend) for entry in September of the same year. The result will be announced in late August.

Your application should be posted to:
