Financial Aid

From what I know, Brown or any Ivy League in general, don't give scholarships, so I want to know how is the financial aid in this institution? How would the process for financial aid work here?

Brown, as well as the rest of the ivies, only awards need-based aid and no merit-based aid. To be eligible to receive need-based aid, you have to fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) before the deadline for your school year. If you want to know how much aid you would most likely receive, you can try Brown's Net Price Calculator. https://npc.collegeboard.org/app/brown

Check out this page: https://www.brown.edu/about/administration/financial-aid/financial-aid-basics. I think it will be helpful in breaking down how Brown handles financial aid
