Students who plan academic-related travel or who intend to receive Brown funding for travel to a country designated as high-risk are required to submit a Supplementary Waiver and Acknowledgement Form to Brown’s Office of International Programs.

Brown’s approval/support of the program of study/research is not granted unless the Supplementary Waiver and Acknowledgement Form is signed by you and a parent or legal guardian.
Please contact the Office of International Programs to receive the form and additional information about the high-risk travel policy.
