Sibley Scholarship awards are named in honor of former Dean Karen Sibley who led the development and growth of Brown’s Pre-College programs from 2003-2019. During that time, Dean Sibley was instrumental in significantly increasing the financial assistance available to students for whom the cost of our program would prohibit their ability to participate. Scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate financial need. Need is determined by considering several factors, including:
- family income
- family size
- savings and investments
- housing and educational expenses
Please note that all students—including Sibley Scholarship recipients, but excluding PPSD and Partner Scholarship recipients—are required to submit a $300 non-refundable deposit to secure a spot in the Pre-College Program. If financial assistance is essential to your ability to attend the program, we recommend that you wait to pay the $300 non-refundable deposit until you have received your scholarship award decision.
If you meet the eligibility requirements, you will be able to apply for a Sibley Scholarship as soon as you submit your program application. At that time, a link to the scholarship application will become available in the Financial Information tab of your student portal. Although the scholarship application will be available for completion before an admission decision is made, a scholarship decision will only be sent to you if you are admitted to the program. Scholarship information is reviewed confidentially by the scholarship team only and does not influence admission decisions.
