All applications must be submitted by 23:59 UK time on 2 November 2016.



If your application has been unsuccessful, you will be notified by email by the end of February. Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications, the Foundation is unable to provide feedback on unsuccessful applications. However, unsuccessful candidates who meet the general eligibility criteria may reapply in subsequent years. 


Shortlist and interviews

Interviews of shortlisted candidates take place in late February or early March in Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine. Shortlisted Syrian candidates may be asked to travel to Lebanon or Turkey for an interview. Exceptionally, some candidates may be interviewed by Skype.



The Foundation’s Board of Trustees makes its final selection in mid-April and candidates will be informed of the outcome by the end of April.
