The Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center provides a platform for developing new ideas and solutions to some of the most difficult global problems. Residencies allow for a quiet setting for focused work and a place to connect with dynamic innovators from across the globe, uninterrupted by the usual professional and personal demands. Residency participants include scholars, scientists, artists, journalists, writers, non-governmental organization practitioners and policymakers from around the world.
Rockefeller Foundation welcomes projects in all fields, but is particularly interested in innovative projects that address one or more of their issue areas: basic survival safeguards (such as issues of food, shelter, water), global health, climate and environment, urbanization, social and economic security. The Center also offers collaborative residencies for two to four persons working on the same project. Creative artists in all fields and scholars in all disciplines from any country are welcome to apply.
A residency is typically four weeks in length.
The deadline for the current competition is 1 December, 2010 for residencies between mid August 2011 to 30 November, 2011.
