Call for Proposals for Residencies at the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center
Deadlines: December 1, 2011 and May 1, 2012
The Residency Program allows for one-month of focused work, uninterrupted by the professional and personal demands of daily life, in a diverse and stimulating community of fellow residents. Residents include an international cohort of scholars, scientists, journalists, writers, artists, non-governmental organization practitioners and policymakers. In addition to time for writing, creativity and reflection during the day, building new connections and collegial interaction with other residents is an integral dimension of the Bellagio experience. Meals and informal presentations of residents' work afford an opportunity for dynamic discussion and engagement with each other. The combination of quiet time for individual, focused work and connections with such a diverse cohort is unparalleled.
Residencies typically last four weeks, and spouses/life partners may accompany residents. There is no charge for accommodations and meals for residents and their spouses, and travel grants are awarded on a needs basis. Joint applications from co-authors are also welcome. Applications for academic writing, arts, and literary arts residencies are due by December 1, 2011, for residencies scheduled between August and December 2012 . (Residency applications will be due on May 1, 2012 for the residency period of February through August 2013.)
Applications from practitioners and for conferences are accepted on a rolling basis.
