On April 13th during Shift Series, the annual conference of The Compass Fellowship in Washington, DC, AWEARNESS, The Kenneth Cole Foundation and Compass Partners announced the three university students selected for the AWEARNESS Grants.  Winners included:

The Dynamic Speaking Label, from Adrian Rodriguez of Stanford University

The Grants were given to support these student-led social enterprises.  Shift Series brings together nearly 150 students from across the United States to share their social venture ideas and network with mentors who will help accelerate their entrepreneurial work.
