Bellagio Center offers residency program [Worldwide]

Posted on Oct 15, 2019 in Specialized Topics

Leaders in journalism and other disciplines are invited to apply for a residency program in 2020 and early 2021 in Italy.

The Bellagio Residency Program, sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation, offers participants the opportunity to establish new connections and solve complex global issues. The program hosts residencies for scholars, creative artists and practitioners.

The Rockefeller Foundation seeks applicants with projects on issues that have a direct impact on the lives of poor and vulnerable populations around the world, including health, economic opportunity, urban resilience, food and agriculture, clean energy, the field of philanthropy, and innovation for development.

Residencies typically last four weeks, but applicants may request a shorter period.

Room and board are provided to all residents and their spouses/partners. Airfare is not included in the residency program; however, the foundation does have a limited travel assistance program based on the income of invited residents.

The deadline is Nov. 15.
