About Brown University: Brown University, founded in 1764, is a member of the Ivy League and recognised for the quality of its teaching, research, and unique curriculum. Located in historic Providence, Rhode Island, Brown University is the seventh-oldest college in the USA.Brown University's Graduate School offers 51 doctoral programmes, including those of the School of Engineering and the School of Public Health.
Brown is renowned for its distinctive student body — independent and self-directed — and for the educational culture that fosters these qualities. Its small size compared to most other leading research universities provides a human scale that allows members of the university community to interact on a meaningful personal level and to develop relationships that enhance the teaching and research work of the university.
Brown is committed to excellence in research as well as in teaching. All regular faculty members actively pursue their own research and intellectual interests, teach in both graduate and undergraduate programs and are active in the direction of theses and dissertations.
The Fulbright PhD Award at Brown University offers the following benefits:
Eligibility requirements: Applicants must be a UK citizen and hold or expect to obtain a minimum 2:1* honours undergraduate degree or the equivalent prior to their anticipated enrolment with a US university.
