Call for Proposals:

Rockefeller Foundation: Bellagio Center




Call for Proposals for Residencies and Conferences
Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center
Deadline: December 1, 2010


Through conferences and residencies, the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center, in Northern Italy, supports innovations that change the way we solve global problems. Here people of diverse expertise and backgrounds come together in a thought-provoking, collegial environment that helps promote impact on a wide range of world issues.

The Residency Program allows for one-month of disciplined 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. Team residencies for small groups of 2-4 are also available.

Bellagio conferences establish new connections across disciplines and geographies, encourage dynamic, small group interactions, and promote innovative and creative thinking—all in a serene setting conducive to focused, goal-oriented work. Approximately one-third of the conferences that take place at the Bellagio Center over the course of a year are organized directly by the Rockefeller Foundation. The other conferences are arranged by people and institutions that share in the Foundation’s vision, to expand opportunities for poor or vulnerable people. For externally-organized conferences, chosen through a competitive process, the Foundation provides the facilities, accommodations, and some travel support at no cost to conference organizers or attendees. These selected conferences aim to contribute to our broader mission of promoting the well-being of humanity.

Applications for scholarly and artistic residencies in the summer and fall of 2011 are due by December 1, 2010. Applications from practitioners and from conference organizers are accepted on a rolling basis.
