Term: Academic Year

Provides funding and support for the pursuit of innovative projects that improve the lives of war-affected children from the Middle East

Blossom Hill seeks passionate, committed individuals with innovative ideas about how to improve the lives of war-affected children from the Middle East and are looking for ambitious candidates who:

  • Demonstrate an ability to succeed and commitment to social change
  • Present bold, innovative and viable approaches that address an authentic need and have potential for exponential impact
  • Are accessible, responsive, articulate, proactive, and take initiative to further expand their reach

Blossom Hill Fellowships are awarded for the pursuit of one of three types of innovative projects: a novel project, sustainable program or impactful product. Based on performance, fellowships may be renewed on a yearly basis.


Before applying to Blossom Hill, all applicants are required to send a pitch video by the deadline below. The pitch video (limited to two minutes) is the candidate's “Shark Tank” moment – imagine yourself in front of four investors making your best pitch for why they should fund you.

The steering committee will then review your pitch video and if approved, will invite you to submit an application before the final deadline (confirm final deadline on Blossom Hill's website.)

All applicants must complete an online registration form before submitting your application. If applying as a team, both applicants must complete the online registration form, as well as the candidate profile portion.

Visit Blossom Hill online for additional information on eligibility and the application process.
