The Oliver Hare Altruism Award is presented each year to a UCL student who has demonstrated great commitment to helping others in both the university community and the wider world. It recognises initiative, empathy and altruism to bring about positive change through volunteering and philanthropic ventures.

The award winner will receive £100.

The award has been established by the organisation Olly's Future in memory of Oliver Hare (16.2.1994 - 14.2.2017) who gained a first class honours degree in History at UCL in 2016. As well as excelling in academia, Oliver always sought to help his friends and anyone in need and acted as an inspiration to all those who knew him. In acknowledging the selfless efforts by a student at UCL every year, Olly’s Future and UCL hope to honour Oliver’s memory and encourage further caring endeavours and voluntary work in his spirit.
