The Academic Writing residency is for university and think tank-based academics, researchers, professors, and scientists working in any discipline. Successful applicants will demonstrate decades of significant professional contributions to their field or show evidence of being on a strong upward trajectory for those earlier in their careers.
The Center has a strong interest in proposals that align with the Rockefeller Foundation’s work to expand opportunities that enable more broadly shared prosperity and build resilience in people, places and institutions to prepare for, withstand, and emerge stronger from acute shocks and chronic stresses. Selected proposals also commonly demonstrate relevance to the Foundation’s core issue areas of Advance Health, Revalue Ecosystems, Secure Livelihoods, and Transform Cities.
Applications are available on our online application portal along with detailed instructions and further information on applying to the Bellagio Residency Program. We strongly recommend that applicants carefully review this information prior to beginning an application.
The open call for applications to the Academic Writing residency program is now closed. The next open application period begins March 1, 2017 with the deadline of May 1, 2017 for residencies in 2018 and early 2019.
