The Bren School invites any agency, company, organization, or individual facing an environmental challenge to submit a proposal for a Group Project. This is a valuable opportunity to have a group of talented master's students tackle the problem and make recommendations to address it. It is also an excellent opportunity to establish a working relationship with the Bren School.

The Bren School solicits Group Project proposals in fall every year. Proposals are due in January. Appropriate Group Project topics are real, current problems in environmental policy or management that require a solution.

Each proposal chosen by the Group Project Selection Committee will be assigned a group of MESM students, and work on the projects will commence during spring quarter of the students' first year of study. The groups will work on the projects for one year and present their results in April of their second year in panel presentations and poster presentations that are open to the public.
