It is our desire to make SALT as affordable as possible. Therefore, we offer SALT campers a chance to earn up to $200 worth of scholarships! To earn the SALT scholarship, you will need to complete two of the six scholarship options below. Each completed task earns you a $100 scholarship from our Jean Galloway Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Instructions: Below are descriptions of the different ways you may earn a $100 scholarship toward your SALT fee. You may complete two of them. Each one has some sort of written assignment that you will be required to turn in (whether it's a form to fill out and sign, a journal, etc). This must be turned in 2 weeks prior to your SALT session. You may mail it in, fax it, or scan it into your computer and email it to me.
Scholarship Opportunity Options
Quiet time journal
Description: Keep a journal of your quiet times between now and the summer. Write the date, the passage read, and the ONE THING you learned from the passage. Of course, you might miss a day here and there, but you must have at least 5 days out of every week (starting at least by January 1) recorded.
Submission: Email me two weeks prior to your SALT session letting me know you are doing this scholarship opportunity. Then, bring the journal with you to your SALT sessions to be reviewed. Once I see your journal, your scholarship will be applied (We understand that this journal will be personal. We will not read every day's entry in detail. We will, however, read a few days at random and see that you did record an acceptable amount of days.)
