Please join NYU Reynolds in congratulating Faria Mardhani, Kathleen McClure, Srishti Nath, and Ryan Thomas (CAS), of Knowledge Access Initiative for being selected as the 2013-14 NYU Reynolds Changemaker Challenge Best Overall Venture and earning the grand prize award!

Knowledge Access Initiative uses counseling and mentoring to provide low income students with information, resources and support during the financial aid process. Their goal is to improve college access for low income students, to make higher education in New York City more equitable, and to promote fairness of opportunity for all students regardless of their financial situation. KAI was founded on the principle that higher education is fundamental to social and economic development and believes no student should be prevented from attaining a college degree because of economic barriers.

NYU Reynolds would also like to acknowledge the 2013-14 CmC seed grant recipient - The Creative Cycle - for their exceptional work. The Creative Cycle believes every child deserves the benefits of a well-stocked arts classroom and will supply teachers with the art supplies their classrooms need, while connecting artists with communities through charitable engagement.

This year's CmC participants were truly dedicated and passionate about making positive social impact. See below to learn more about each of the teams. We look forward to hearing about the success of their ventures!
