Making Brown more affordable for students and their families
The best and the brightest students have multiple options when choosing where to attend college. When they think about where they can best develop their skills and realize their full potential, we want them to think “Brown.” Through the BrownTogether campaign, we are expanding upon a series of investments in financial aid that began with the implementation of need-blind admission in 2003.
The Brown Promise, launched in 2018, raises Brown’s financial assistance programs to the next level by removing loans from all University-packaged undergraduate financial aid awards and replacing them with scholarships. In just three years, it has made it easier for students from moderate-income backgrounds to choose Brown and worry less about accruing debt that might limit their professional choices after graduation.
