The General Open Call convening theme is open to all convening organizers, working in any discipline or area of study. Applications can be based on any topic but must demonstrate a clear potential to result in impact following the convening.

The Rockefeller Foundation is actively seeking to increase the diversity of its programs and is especially interested in supporting convening organizers who are based outside of the U.S., who are citizens of low and middle-income countries and/or who represent low and middle-income countries through their cultural backgrounds and worldviews.

Applicants hoping to convene in 2023 should apply before June 6th, 2022. We will make decisions roughly 6 months in advance of the dates indicated on your application.
