Graduate Student Funding & Support

Graduate students at Brown are offered a range of funding and support that varies by academic program.

Financial support is administered exclusively by each academic department or program through the Brown Graduate School or the School of Professional Studies. Graduate students are generally eligible for financial support in the form of tuition support, stipends, fellowships, assistantships, scholarship and/or proctorships.

Doctoral students are offered five years of guaranteed financial support, including a stipend, tuition remission, health-services fee support, and health- and dental-insurance subsidies. Financial aid for master’s students is determined within each program.

Brown’s Warren Alpert Medical School offers financial aid awards for future M.D.s, along with other financing options.

Students admitted to any of Brown’s Ph.D. programs are guaranteed five years of support including a stipend, tuition remission, health services fee and health insurance subsidy.
Financial aid for master’s students is determined within each program; the majority of students enrolled in master’s programs and engaged in non-degree study are self-supported.
