The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center, through a combination of conferences and residency programs, supports the work of scholars, artists, thought leaders, policymakers, and practitioners who share in the Foundation’s pioneering mission to “promote the well-being of humanity around the world.” The Center has a strong interest in proposals that align with The Rockefeller Foundation’s efforts to promote the well-being of humanity, particularly through issues that have a direct impact on the lives of poor and vulnerable populations around the world. These issues include but are not limited to health, economic opportunity, urban resilience, as well as food and agriculture.

The next open application period for Academic Writing Residencies and Arts & Literary Arts Residencies is October 1 - December 1 of 2018. 

Applications for Practitioner Residencies and to the Bellagio Conference Program are currently closed. Additional review dates in 2018 are forthcoming.
