Atlas Scholars held a fundraising event, Sunday for Scholars, at the Houston Polo Club. Guests raised more than $140,000 for scholarships, admission-test tutoring, and mentorship for high school and college students. Jay Mondkar, a scholar graduate from the first year of the program, spoke and pledged a $20,000 match donation. The nonprofit, founded by River Oaks residents Craig Taylor and Tejpal Singh in 2013, provides mentorship and internships for motivated students of diverse backgrounds. Atlas Scholars has benefitted 87 scholars and awarded over $450,000 in scholarships. Board members include Mary Anne Brelinsky, Geoffrey Berg, and Greg Agran.
