Bellagio Residency Program

Funding Agency:
Rockefeller Foundation

The Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center Residency Program offers academics, artists, policymakers, and practitioners an opportunity to unlock their creativity and advance groundbreaking work through the completion of a specific project in a residential group setting during 4 weeks of focused time.

The Bellagio Center Residency is an unparalleled opportunity for deep exchange among leaders from a wide array of backgrounds, disciplines, and geographies. Rather than a retreat for private reflection, the Bellagio Center Residency offers an opportunity to advance a specific breakthrough project and a stimulating environment to forge cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural connections with other residents that can strengthen their work, shift their perspectives, and spur new ideas. Bellagio Center residents form lasting bonds and stay connected to each other and to The Rockefeller Foundation long after their residency ends, as members of the Bellagio Center Network.

Bellagio residency projects address a wide array of topics, fields, and issues. The commonality across projects is a commitment to social impact aligned with the Foundation’s mission to “make opportunity universal and sustainable.” We look for projects that challenge established norms and approaches and have the potential for breakthrough impact at significant local, national or global scale.

Applications for the 2025 Bellagio residency will open on March 4th, 2024 with a deadline in April.
