Grants of $50,000 for Entrepreneurs to Implement Projects that Help Refugees 2020

Blossom Hill offers fellowships to 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. 

Funding:

Fellowships are up to $50,000 a year and are renewable on a yearly basis depending on assessment and evaluation of the project’s impact. Fellows who demonstrate significant impact in the community and who comply with Blossom Hill’s requirements may be eligible to re-apply at nine (9) months for additional funding the following year.
