Welcome to the Galena Career Center
  • Scholarships:

    Hundreds of additional scholarships are available online. NEVER PAY FOR SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION. Be aware that many internet scholarship search sites pass along (and profit off of) the sale of your personal information to other companies. If you choose to utilize national search sites then use those that allow you to manage your privacy settings (like College Greenlight).  Read the privacy policies closely.

    All scholarships posted at Galena will be posted in our SENIOR CLASS OF 2022 in TEAMS, as well as QR Codes posted on bulletin boards outside the career center.


    • NEVER pay for scholarship applications or fees.
    • Make sure all pages you submit are typed, NEAT, well edited, and that all the information you include is true and verifiable.
    • Always try and beat the deadline posted.
    • National scholarships can involve BIG money, however, they are very difficult to get.  Go LOCAL if you can.  Look for local stores, businesses, or perhaps your parent(s) employer may offer scholarship
    • Try to submit applications as least one week before the due date.  Online servers can get overloaded and stop working properly when everyone submits them on the last day.  In addition, remember to account for delivery time if mailing an application.
    • NEVER NEVER pay to submit a scholarship application.
    • Always spell check and proof-read applications.
    • Make sure you have submitted everything requested and answered all the questions.
    • Don't submit anything that isn't asked for, and stay under the required word count.
    • Photocopy everything before you submit it, in case your application gets lost and needs to be re-submitted.
    • Professionalize your online presence, remove potentially embarrassing content from social media.  Use an appropriate email address.
    • Gather information early.  Most scholarships require various versions of:
      • Community service activities, hours, location, services
      • Personal Essay
      • Letters of recommendations
      • Resume with test scores, honors classes, and awards received

    WUE: Western Undergraduate Exchange.

    The goal is to provide affordable options for students wanting to attend college out of their home state. WUE (pronounced “woo-wee”) is the Western Undergraduate Exchange, and it is coordinated by WICHE. WUE is a regional tuition-reciprocity agreement that enables students from WICHE states to enroll in more than 150 participating two- and four-year public institutions at 150 percent of the enrolling institution’s resident tuition. WUE is the largest program of its kind in the nation, and has been in operation since 1987! WUE is not a short-term exchange—it is meant to be used for a full degree.
