Momentum Education

Jorge Alvarado and Raj Salhotra

Local nonprofit organization Momentum Education recently awarded 30 scholarships to Houston-area students. Jorge Alvarado and Momentum Education founder Raj Salhotra (pictured, from left) celebrated with other scholarship recipients at the scholarship event. Jorge is a graduate of HISD’s Sam Houston High School and will attend Houston Community College with the award he received. The Momentum Education scholarship awards high school students with four-year renewable scholarships to help them with their educational expenses. The scholarship focuses on first-generation, low-income students, who are attending either community college or a four-year university. In addition to the scholarship, students also participate in a mentorship program to support them through their college education and into the workforce.
