In 2008, a Ministerial Scholarship Fund was established with the Salem Community Foundation. The fund will provide scholarship aid to assist persons who will spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This scholarship is extended to those individuals who wish to enter the fields of the Ministry, Christian Education, Youth Ministry, or a closely related field. The anonymous donor of the Ministerial Scholarship recognizes the financial impact of a career in the ministry. It is the wish of the donor to support those individuals who display a sincere desire to dedicate oneself to a career path as defined by the guidelines of the scholarship. Guidelines and eligibility include: awards are valid at Bible Colleges, undergraduate and graduate schools, applicants must submit indication of financial need, academic performance, reference letters, and a personal statement. The Ministerial Scholarship does not discriminate on the basis of religious denomination, age, sex race, or geography.
