A select number of BLOOM Scholar slots are designated for exceptional students who have graduated from university within the past year and have demonstrated both a deep commitment to personal growth and investment in Jewish community-building. BLOOM scholars participate in the Pardes Year/Semester program as full time students.
A letter of recommendation from a campus Jewish professional (Hillel, JLIC, Chabad, Olami or other) who can speak to the candidate’s relevant community experience and potential growth is required. This may be one of the two letters of recommendation required for the YP application, or an additional recommendation. The letter must be submitted along with the Fellowship Application and the Pardes 2022-2023 Year Program application, no later than March 22, 2022.
Fellowship applications for 2022-23 are now open.
