Fellowships for Scholars and Artists

Funding Agency:
Camargo Foundation

The Camargo Fellowship is the flagship program of the Camargo Foundation. Since 1971, the Camargo Foundation has awarded residencies to nearly 1,500 individuals as part of its mission to support groundbreaking research, experimentation, and interdisciplinary approaches in the Arts and Humanities. Each year, an esteemed panel of scholars and arts professionals selects 14 individuals or teams.

The Camargo Foundation is committed to supporting inclusiveness and a diversity of contemporary reflections and practices, welcoming applicants from around the globe. The Camargo Fellowship offers research-based residencies to applicants from various fields and disciplines. Three main categories are available, as well as several subcategories for artists’ applications.

SCHOLARS: Scholars should be connected to the Arts and Humanities working on French and Francophone cultures, or cross-cultural studies that engage the cultures and influences of the Mediterranean region. To be eligible for a fellowship in the “Scholars” category, applicants are expected either to hold a PhD and a record of post-doctoral scholarship, or to be PhD candidates completing the final stages of research for, or writing of, their dissertation. 

THINKERS: Thinkers include accomplished professionals and practitioners in cultural and creative fields (such as curators, journalists, critics, urban planners, independent scholars, etc.) who are professionally engaged in critical thought. We are interested in work attuned to the theoretical arena, the arts, and society.

ARTISTS: Artists should keep in mind that the Camargo Fellowship is a research-based residency. Applicants should have had a practice for, at a minimum, the previous 5 years. They should be the primary creators of new work or a new project. They should be able to demonstrate a track record of publications, public performances and exhibitions, credits, awards, and/or grants. 

COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS: Teams of up to three individuals are welcome to apply, including but not limited to interdisciplinary collaborative projects. One stipend and one travel grant are awarded to each member of the team, and one multi-bedroom apartment is assigned to the entire team. Collaborative teams must provide application materials for all members of the team, including CVs and work samples. A maximum of 2 collaborative projects per application cycle can be selected. 

TRANSLATION PROJECTS: Professional translators are eligible to apply. Academic translators who meet the eligibility requirements for Scholars can apply under the Scholar category. Literary translators with a theoretical or research-oriented project are encouraged to apply under the Thinker category. Translators who frame their practice as creative writing can apply under the Writer category. Applicants are welcome to choose the category they prefer according to their specific project and profile.
