SALT Scholars Program

What is SALT?

Square Inch Scholarship for Academics, Leadership and Transformation (SALT) is a yearlong Discipleship, Leadership Formation, and Community Engagement program that offers college students an opportunity to be mentored and invested in by local community leaders in the Greater Third Ward. Surrounded by a supportive network, these students will be shaped into wholehearted justice-driven leaders who take ownership of the social and spiritual renewal of the Greater Third Ward community.

This program will launch in the Fall of 2019 and we are inviting students who meet the following criteria to apply for an opportunity to be discipled and mentored for a year, while being awarded a financial scholarship of a $1,000 per fall and spring semesters towards their tuition for the 2019/2020 academic year.
