Education and Scholarship Committee announces scholarships
The “Lend a Hand” College Scholarship is for students who live in the school districts Galena, River Ridge, and Scales Mound. The homeowners of The Galena Territory Association have established this foundation and scholarship for the purpose of helping these students afford the cost of obtaining a college degree. As property owners in The Galena Territory, we are keenly interested in the opportunity to “Lend a Hand” through providing a limited number of scholarships to students who reside in these districts. We truly hope that the efforts of the Galena Territory Foundation will help add strength to the fabric of our community, and will enable the young people of our school districts to enjoy success in their educational growth after high school. The future of any community is based on the participation we can all offer by our willingness to “Lend a Hand”. Applications are available each year in January and due in March.
