Funding is contingent upon faculty determination of satisfactory student progress through the academic program. Four years of financial support is the norm for those entering with a relevant Masters degree and five years for those entering without such a background.

Applying for Financial Support

All admitted students receive funding. There is not separate application for financial support.

Additional Sources of Funding

Successful applicants receive up to $3,500 to support global health research, service and advocacy activities directly linked to Brown University faculty scholarly projects.
