SALT

Overview

Prairie is committed to providing a biblical education that will make a difference in your life and future ministry. As a school, we strive to provide excellent teaching and also intentional learning experiences outside the classroom. To lower student debt load and provide a valuable holistic education, we have made an institutional commitment to the Student Applied Leadership Training (SALT) program, which provides a bursary that is equivalent to a single dorm room accommodation for eligible second, third and fourth-year students. (Students are eligible for SALT positions once they have completed 24 credits towards their program).

A major component of SALT is participation within the life of our community. Second, third and fourth-year students are uniquely positioned to contribute, take ownership and invest into every aspect of Prairie. Bursary eligible positions are designed to help students grow in three key areas: character development, relational development and skills development.

Eligibility

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.
  • Students pursuing their program via Online Education or Hyflex are not eligible to participate in the SALT program.

Please familiarize yourself with the eligibility requirements and apply for a position by contacting the supervisor listed beside the positions below. Some of these positions are highly desirable so don’t delay. If you have any questions about eligibility, please contact finaid@prairie.edu.
