Tuition in the Graduate School for the 2020-2021 academic year is $7,407 per course or $66,663 for the nine courses required for the UEP degree. Generally, tuition increases by 3-5% from year to year.
The program awards merit-based scholarships to about 2/3 of all applicants, ranging from 10-100% of tuition cost. If you apply by January 15, you will be automatically considered for merit-based scholarships. In addition, research and teaching assistantships and other work opportunities are available to help offset the program costs. Applicants can apply for federal loans by completing a FAFSA form.
Students can also apply for the Urban Education Fellowship (UEF). As part of Brown University’s commitment to the Providence schools, the UEF cancels the student loan — making the program effectively no-cost — if the Fellow works for three years after graduation in a full-time position within a public sector education organization or non-profit entity in the Rhode Island urban core region. Applicants can apply for a UEF when they apply to the program. UEF applications are due January 27, 2020.
