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.
PPSD students applying for admission are eligible for an application fee waiver. Accepted Pre-College students currently attending a PPSD school (as listed below) will be able to apply for a PPSD Scholarship as soon as the application is available in the Financial Information tab of their Student Portal. Although the scholarship application will be available for completion before an admission decision is made, application review will only begin if/when a student is admitted. Scholarship information is reviewed confidentially by the scholarship team only and does not influence admission decisions.
Scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate financial need. Need is determined by considering several factors, including family income, family size, number of siblings in college and housing expenses.
