The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center, through a combination of convening and residency programs, advances the thought leadership and action-oriented work of scholars, artists, thought leaders, policymakers, and practitioners, furthering 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 this mission, 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 and jobs, urban resiliency, food and agriculture, clean energy, and the field of philanthropy.

We welcome proposals on any topic, and are especially interested in candidates whose projects address the themes of gender equality, building green economies, or the governance and responsible use of artificial intelligence. More information about the program and criteria for selection can be found on the Foundation's website:

Applications for Bellagio Residencies and Convenings in 2023 are now closed, and will re-open in the spring of 2023 for consideration in 2024.
