THE BROWN PROMISE
Beginning in the 2018-19 academic year, Brown University will replace loans with scholarship funds in financial aid packages for all returning and incoming undergraduate students through a new initiative called The Brown Promise. The move builds on a dedicated effort launched nearly 15 years ago to make a Brown education more accessible to students from all income backgrounds, and it will apply to all Brown undergraduates who receive financial aid. This includes next year’s incoming undergraduate class (the Class of 2022) as well as enrolled undergraduates returning to campus. It will apply to both domestic and international students. Read more about The Brown Promise in the University's announcement of the initiative or on the Financial Aid website.
