WHAT: Rockefeller Foundation Call for Proposals for Residencies at the Bellagio Center
WHERE: Italy
DEADLINES: December 1, 2010 and May 1, 2011
WHEN: Summer and Fall, 2011
WHO: Scholars, scientists, journalists, writers, artists, composers, non-governmental organization practitioners, and policy makers

Through conferences and residencies, the Rockefeller Foundation's Bellagio Center in northern Italy brings together people of diverse expertise and backgrounds in a thought-provoking, collegial environment that helps to promote impact on a wide range of world issues.

The center's 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 policy makers. 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.

Residencies typically last four weeks, and spouses/life partners may accompany residents. Team residencies for small groups of two to four are also available; practitioners (i.e., not artists or scholars based at universities) may opt for two two-week residency periods.

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.
