The Fund will support high impact education programs at the secondary, vocational and tertiary levels of education for refugee youth in Jordan and/or Lebanon.

In its second round, the Fund prioritizes “Innovations in Refugee Education” in an effort to explore and identify new solutions to long-standing challenges in refugee education that can improve impact at scale. Although the previous round also focused on identifying innovative approaches in the design and delivery of programs, in this round, the innovative element will be expected to be clearly defined and will as a result be evaluated separately.
