Financial aid:

Brown University's complete guidelines on financial aid can be found on the Graduate School's Financing & Support website. In brief: 

The decision to pursue graduate study represents a significant commitment of time, energy, and resources — yours and ours. 

Students who are admitted to any of Brown's doctoral programs are guaranteed five years of support, including a stipend, tuition remission, health-services fee, and health-insurance subsidy.

Financial aid for master’s students is not centrally managed and varies among programs; the majority of students enrolled in master’s programs and engaged in non-degree study are self-supported.

Students’ official letters of admission provide details of their funding packages. All subsequent funding decisions are made at the program level and depend on students' academic progress.
