DCP Funding Tops $6 million

April 6, 2017

The Graduate School is pleased to announce that all 77 Dissertation Completion Proposal (DCP) requests from rising sixth-year students in the Humanities and Social Sciences for 2017-18 support were met, totaling $6.2 million. The support, which includes tuition, stipend, and health and dental insurance, has been communicated to the 77 students enrolled in 24 doctoral programs. Options included the possibility of an Interdisciplinary Opportunity at one of 16 Centers and Institutes at Brown University. Through this distinctive training option, 17 students will participate in the intellectual life of a center or institute. In addition, four rising sixth-year students in the Humanities and Social Science were named Deans’ Faculty Fellows for Fall 2017. Meeting all of the DCP requests was made possible through the collaboration of academic programs, the Graduate School, Centers and Institutes, the Office of the Dean of the Faculty, and student success in receiving external funding.
