Brown University has just announced that they will be waiving their application fee for low-income students.

The Rhode Island-based Ivy League school announced on Friday that any applicants who are eligible for free lunch, enrolled in a government program aiding low-income families, or belong to a college-access organization are not subject to the $75 application fee, effective as of the fall 2018 semester.

The change comes as a result of a group of Ivy League students, led by Brown senior Viet Nguyen, penning a letter in February requesting the change.

According to the Associated Press, low-income students were already able to submit requests for fee waivers – the new policy change simply makes it so that applicants don’t have to ask.
