Financial Support

Financial Support


Financial aid is available to master’s students in the form of Public Health Program scholarships and research apprenticeships.  Supplemental research apprenticeships are also occasionally available and may cover a larger portion of tuition and/or monthly stipend. When available, these awards are based on merit and qualifications; student loans also are available through the Financial Aid Office.


Students who are admitted to the doctoral program are guaranteed five years of support, including stipend, tuition, health services fee and health-insurance subsidies.  When admitted, students receive an official letter from Brown’s Graduate School providing details of their funding package.  All subsequent funding decisions are made at the Department level.

The Department of Epidemiology guarantees support of our doctoral students in the form of Research Assistant assignments and Teaching Assistant assignments with our Department faculty.   

The School of Public Health also offers other Funding Opportunities, including conference travel support.
