Graduate School Awards $3.8 Million in Sixth-Year Support

May 6, 2013

The Graduate School has committed $3.8 million in Dissertation Completion Support (DCP) funding, including tuition, for doctoral students for 2013-2014. Excluding tuition, the support totaled $1.1 million.  Departmental-offered funding puts overall DCP support near $4 million, tuition inclusive, for the period.  All 69 doctoral students are receiving DCP support, with 55 receiving the full amount requested.

In addition, the Graduate School has committed $1.3 million in Dissertation Extension Proposal (DEP) support for 2013-14, with awards going to 17, or 89%, of the 19 doctoral students who sought support.

All Brown doctoral students in good standing receive five years of guaranteed financial support, including a stipend, tuition remission, a health-services fee, and a health-insurance subsidy.

Those requiring additional time to complete degree requirements may apply for support through the DCP process, which began as a pilot project in 2011.  Those who did not complete the dissertation as scheduled under an approved DCP may submit a DEP, requesting a tuition scholarship
