Roy Fenton Scholarships

Posted on 12 July 2016

Following a generous donation, the Department of Chemistry will establish The Roy Fenton Scholarship.

Roy Fenton was, in 1968, one of the first set of graduates from the new Department of Chemistry at York, and has decided to endow a new undergraduate scholarship.

In particular, these scholarships will ‘provide support to talented students who have the academic potential to study at York and who have overcome significant barriers to their educational goals’.

One of these scholarships will be awarded each year and will last for the first three years of the student’s undergraduate course. The scholarship has a monetary value of £2k/annum and is to be awarded, subject to satisfactory academic progress.

These scholarships will support the department's key commitment to providing the best possible educational experiences for students from a diverse range of backgrounds.
