Galaway Foundation Funds Scholarship

The St. Cloud State University Foundation has received a gift of $300,000 from the Galaway Foundation to endow a scholarship fund to help alleviate the economic burden associated with pursuing a college degree. The fund will award at least one full or partial scholarship that covers tuition and fees for a full-time student.

Helping students that have potential but might not otherwise be able to afford college is important to the Galaway family, shared Andy Galaway ’90, president of the Galaway Foundation. “I have 27 foster brothers and sisters and my parents have been associated with foster care for 30-40 years,” he said. “My family has always been interested in helping young people have a better shot at life.”

The scholarship will be awarded to students who demonstrate academic and leadership promise. Special consideration will be given to applicants who:

  • Have overcome obstacles such as socioeconomic, educational disadvantages, or disabilities.
  • Are the first in their family to attend college.
  • Were in foster care when they graduated from high school.
  • Are from a one parent family.
  • Graduated from a small high school or resides in a rural community.
  • Are a refugee or a recent immigrant.

“[Our] foundation is optimistic about the future and sees a lot of hope and promise in young people,” Galaway said. “We are impressed with the activities that young people are involved in to help the world become a better place.”

“Through the generosity of the Galaway Foundation, students that have faced challenges in pursuit of their education will have one less obstacle to contend with,” said Matt Andrew, vice president of University Advancement. “We are honored to partner with the Galaway Foundation to assist students in achieving their academic goals.”
