Cropland bordering rainforest in Iguacu National Park, Argentina, Brazil.

This grant, made possible thanks to the generosity of an anonymous Brown parent, supports partnerships between the University and Brazilian academic institutions to promote research and teaching related to Brazil in the areas of mathematics, environmental sciences, public health, medicine, and engineering. The grant also supports research on the Atlantic Rainforest in the south of Bahia, particularly interdisciplinary topics related to biodiversity studies, species surveys, sustainable development, social entrepreneurship, and fair trade.
