Brown University does not offer aid based on academic achievement, athletic ability or any other form of merit. Eligibility is determined solely on financial need. Assistance from outside sources, however, may be based on a variety of criteria including merit and/or financial need.
It is the student's responsibility to notify the Office of Financial Aid in writing of the receipt of any outside awards throughout the academic year. Please note that student athletes are also required to notify the Department of Athletics of any outside funding. This can be accomplished by completing the Outside Scholarship Reporting Form for incoming students, or the Brown Continuing Student Application for returning students.
