Those awards were provided by the Narayanan Family Foundation, a charitable organization established in 2016 by Ari Daman, a landscape designer, and Srinivas Narayanan, a director at Facebook - according to his LinkedIn page. The three students from Berkeley that were recognized were: Grace Mitchell Tada, Cheyenne Concepcion and Ellen Plane.
