Blossom Hill believes in the importance of engaging and empowering war-affected children from the Middle East.

We introduced our Social Entrepreneur Fellowship Program for this singular purpose: to encourage individuals to develop innovative and solution-focused initiatives that create opportunity for conflict-affected children and help to break the cycle of violence that plagues their communities.

We invite applications from social entrepreneurs who have developed an innovative approach, program, or product that positively impacts war-affected Middle Eastern communities, either in-country or displaced due to conflict.

Initiatives:
1) can take place in any Middle East (18 countries) or another country where war refugee populations are prevalent and are the primary program beneficiaries, and
2) must reach children and youth beneficiaries ages 24 and under.

Fellowships are up to $50,000/year and are renewable depending on assessment and evaluation of the project’s impact.

Utilize This Offer

Applicants should have:
1) significant experience and close ties with the community and culture their idea is designed to serve;
2) the language skills necessary for the successful implementation of their proposed initiative.
