Scholarship Information 2023

The Directors of the Friends of the Solana Beach Library recently announced the recipients of the 2023 Friends Scholarship awards for education beyond the high school level. Six awards of $1000 each were awarded to a diverse group of Solana Beach residents in terms of schools attended (Torrey Pines High School, Canyon Crest Academy, and San Dieguito Academy), educational, and career aspirations, and life experiences as detailed in their application essays. In the future they plan to attend schools as nearby as MiraCosta College and as far away as the University of Virginia and study in fields as diverse as construction management, physical therapy, neuroscience, administration of justice, and politics and government. They all have significant records of academic achievement, service to the Solana Beach community and beyond, and outstanding recommendations from teachers, counselors, and others.

The Friends will be offering scholarships again in 2024 and all application information will be available on our website in the first quarter of 2024. Over the past 14 years, the Friends of the Solana Beach Library is proud to have provided just over $47,000 in scholarship funds to students pursuing education beyond the high school level. If you wish to help us continue to support students through scholarships, you may specifically direct any money you wish to donate to the Friends to our Scholarship Fund.
