Tuition and Financial Aid for Undergraduates

If Brown is for you, we'll help you get here. Our generous financial aid initiatives are designed to enrich our campus community by ensuring that no student who belongs at Brown will encounter cost as a barrier.

How do we do this? We meet 100 percent of each student's demonstrated financial need. And we do this with no loans — only scholarship grants — included in University financial aid packages. This is The Brown Promise, the latest in a long series of initiatives to make Brown increasingly affordable to students and families from all socioeconomic backgrounds.

Funding and Support for Graduate and Medical Students

Brown's Graduate School and Warren Alpert Medical School share in the University's overall commitment to enrolling talented students from every background. 

The Graduate School offers incoming doctoral students five years of guaranteed financial support, including a stipend, tuition remission, a health-services fee, and health- and dental-insurance subsidies. Financial aid for master's students is determined within each program.

Brown's medical school offers financial aid awards for future M.D.s, and many students in the University's executive education programs are eligible for financing options.
