Rockefeller Foundation Announces Bellagio Study and Conference Center Program

Deadline: May 10, 2005; August 1, 2005; January 2, 2006; August 1, 2006

The Rockefeller Foundation ( <a href=""></a> ) is accepting applications for the Bellagio Study and Conference Center.

The Bellagio Center in northern Italy provides an environment for convenings and residencies in which scholars, scientists, artists, writers, policymakers, and practitioners may pursue their creative and scholarly work.

From February to mid-December, the center offers one-month stays for fifteen residents at a time in any discipline or field and coming from any country who expect a publication, exhibition, performance, or other concrete product to result.

The center also offers interdisciplinary, intercultural networking through the convening of small working groups (from three to twenty-five participants) of policy makers, practitioners, scholars, scientists, artists, and others.
Priority is accorded to proposals that address significant issues and problems within or across given fields, are innovative in their design, and promise concrete outcomes beyond the drafting of a statement or recommendations.

The Rockefeller Foundation provides room and board without charge for all residents and workshop/team participants. Some travel assistance is available for those from developing countries who qualify.

The Bellagio Center brochure, application, dates of stay, and deadlines are available at the Rockefeller Foundation Web site.
