To lower student debt and provide a valuable holistic education, we have created the SALT program.

SALT provides a bursary equal to free accommodation (equivalent to a double-occupancy dorm room) for eligible third and fourth-year students participating in specific campus positions.

In order to qualify, students will have to meet the following eligibility requirements:

Must live in dorm or Davidson apartments. (Married students may live off campus.)
Must be enrolled in at least 9 credits each semester. (Students in their final semester may qualify if they have fewer credits to complete for graduation.)
Must have a minimum GPA of 2.0 and not be on Academic Probation.
Apply for a position by contacting the supervisor listed beside the positions on this page.

Scholarships are awarded in amounts varying from $200 – $2,000

Students who are granted a scholarship from Prairie will have it applied to their student account following registration in January (second semester). Failure to enroll in September disqualifies the student from the entire award.

Applications for provincial and federal student aid must be received at the provincial/state loan and processing centres no later than June 15 in order to have approval before college begins.
