All Neuroscience Graduate Program and Brown-NIH Graduate Partnership Program students are fully supported during their time in graduate school. Students will receive a competitive stipend, tuition, health insurance, and health services fee. Students also receive a one-time transitional stipend at the beginning of graduate study to help defray the cost of moving to Providence and transitioning to Brown. No financial support forms need to be submitted by applicants.
Application Fee Waiver
The Graduate School provides fee waivers for students who can demonstrate financial need. You must complete your application 14 days in advance of the programs application deadline and request a fee waiver beforehand. Please visit the Graduate School website for instructions on how to request a fee waiver.
The NSGP program has a limited number of fee waivers that we can provide for students who miss this deadline or who have participated in certain programs. To request a one-time-use application fee waiver code, send an email to [email protected] using the email templates below. This request must be received at least 7 days before the application deadline. If you request a fee waiver after this time we may not be able to provide one.
The NSGP program is unable to provide fee waivers for international applicants.
Fee waivers are available for U.S. citizens or permanent residents applying to NSGP who are members of SACNAS, MARC, BP-ENDURE, Leadership Alliance, RISE programs, Teach for America, or similar programs. Please provide proof of program participation.
