It represents the creativity, scholarship, and leadership that are hallmarks of Brown. It is a true reflection of its founder, Chuck Royce, whose dedication and affection for Brown continues to inspire.
Brown University has a proud history of supporting undergraduate research, but what truly distinguishes the Royce Fellowship is its emphasis on community and dialogue. This is a great credit to Chuck Royce, who understands that good scholars should feel compelled to articulate the public value of their work to a broad range of people. Universities are places of deep and resourceful thinking, and their knowledge should be accessible to those beyond the university gates. We are very proud of the contributions that Royce Fellows have made to the University and to the world and look forward to new generations of Royce Fellows.
Charles Royce is a 1961 graduate of Brown University and the parent of two Brown graduates. Mr. Royce, president of Royce Funds, has served as a University trustee since 1989 and is an active member of several committees, including CAFA, the Committee on Admission and Financial Aid.
