MSW student Bryant Hepp is part of an interdisciplinary team that has been awarded $60,000 in funding through the Dow Distinguished Awards competition. The team’s project, “Greening Low-Income, Self-Managed Housing Projects in Brazil,” will implement schematic designs at a designated self-managed housing site. Activities will include planting trees, protecting water springs and creeks, installing educational signage, pathways throughout areas of permanent protection, and construction of communal spaces (pavilions) with pervious surfaces.
U-M’s Dow Distinguished Awards are designed to foster interdisciplinary collaboration and engaged learning at the graduate level.
