Admission & Financial Aid

If you are here because you are a U.S. military veteran considering applying to Brown, first we want to say "Thank you!" for your service in our nation’s Armed Forces. Brown University has a rich and distinguished history of supporting, through research and education, our men and women in uniform.

Although the transition from the military to college life can be daunting and challenging, Brown is committed to building a community that actively supports veterans who are beginning, returning to, or advancing their pursuit of higher education. Prospective students should contact our Office for more information. 

Financial Aid

Information about financial aid available for undergraduate student veterans is available at the Office for Financial Aid’s Veterans Benefits webpage. The important message we want you to hear is that Brown's financial aid policies, combined with the Veteran Administration's Yellow Ribbon Program, makes a Brown education accessible and affordable for many students. Talk to us and we can help you!

Prospective medical students should contact the Office of Financial Aid (401-863-1142; MD_Finaid AT brown.edu) in the Warren Alpert Medical School. Financial aid helps prospective (and current) students navigate the system of activiting their Veterans Affairs benefits.
