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 the January deadline, 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.
Urban Education Fellowship
Students can also apply for the Urban Education Fellowship (UEF). As part of Brown University’s commitment to the local Providence community, the Fellowship offers loan forgiveness if the Fellow works for three years after program completion in a full-time position within a public sector education organization or non-profit entity in the Rhode Island urban core region.
