The Dr. Beatriz Solis Scholarship aims to honor the legacy and impact of Dr. Beatriz Solis (1962-2020), a passionate advocate for vulnerable and disadvantaged communities. Dr. Solis, a La Puente High School graduate, pursued her undergraduate, master's, and doctorate degrees at UCLA. As the Program Director of Healthy Communities at The California Endowment, she dedicated her career to translating love into justice, focusing on building healthy communities through public health policies grounded in economic, environmental, and racial justice.

In memory of Dr. Solis, ActiveSGV is proud to award several scholarships in the range of $300 to $700 to deserving students who have exhibited a strong commitment to higher education. These scholarships are available to students from various schools and organizations, empowering them to pursue their dreams at 4-year institutions, 2-year institutions, or accredited trade schools. We applaud the recipients for their remarkable achievements and commend their dedication to personal and academic growth.

We would like to sincerely thank the donors, judges, and benefactors whose generous support has made this scholarship program possible. Your tax-deductible donations contribute to the continuity and success of the Dr. Beatriz Solis Scholarship.
