Financial Services Resources

The Brown School’s Office of Student Financial Services provides guidance for funding your graduate degree. The office can help field questions about the FAFSA process, student loans, federal work-study, tuition and fees, your financial aid package and preparing your budget for graduate school.

Admitted master’s-level students with questions about scholarships from the Brown School should reach out to the Office of Admissions & Recruitment.

Financing Your Education Guide

We know that funding a graduate degree is a significant investment of time and financial resources for you and your loved ones. With that in mind, we have created a Financing Your Education Guide with two primary goals: to empower you to have ongoing and transparent conversations about financing your time at the Brown School, and to offer you important – and often overlooked – resources for making informed financial decisions.
