In partnership with the Providence Public School District, Brown Pre-College Programs seek to increase district student access to rigorous academic and college preparatory opportunities offered through our courses and extra-curricular experiences. All admitted PPSD students can receive full scholarships to attend pre-college programs, and there is particular emphasis on providing scholarships for students who would not otherwise be able to afford the opportunity.
If you attend a PPSD school (as listed on this page), you will be eligible to complete a PPSD Scholarship form as soon as you submit your program application. At that time, a link to the scholarship form will become available in the Financial Information tab of your student portal. Although the scholarship form will be available for completion before an admission decision is made, a scholarship notification 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.
The information you provide in the PPSD scholarship form does not impact the amount of the PPSD scholarship award. A full scholarship, as described below, will be awarded to all PPSD students who complete a scholarship form and have been admitted to the Brown Pre-College Program.
