Dear Gilbert Llanto,
In my role as Managing Director for Bellagio Programs at The Rockefeller Foundation, I am reaching out to you today to announce the bi-annual competition for academic writing residencies at the Foundation’s Bellagio Center.
The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center, through conferences and residency programs, supports the work of scholars, artists, policymakers, and practitioners who share in the Foundation’s pioneering mission to “promote the well-being of humanity.” The Bellagio Center Residency program offers these individuals a setting conducive to focused work, and the unparalleled opportunity to establish new connections with fellow residents from a stimulating array of disciplines and geographies.
We hope you will support our effort to spread the word about the latest competition which opened on March 1, 2017 with a final deadline for applications on May 1, 2017. Applicants accepted during this open call will be awarded residencies in 2018.
We invite you to share the outreach flyer widely in your networks. You may also want to direct prospective applicants to The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center website for additional information.
In terms of the resident profiles we aim to attract, the following criteria may help to provide some greater clarity:
- Well-established and highly accomplished academics whose work is aligned with or may inform the discourse around the Rockefeller Foundation’s goals to build resilience and more inclusive economies. Those working on projects that relate to our focus areas are also highly encouraged (Transform Cities, Secure Livelihoods, Revalue Ecosystems and Advance Health).
- Academics who are at an inflection point in their work—they may be ready to pivot and experiment with something new, or may be in a position to reflect and generate insights from a lifetime of experience
- Academics whose work has the potential for significant impact—perhaps by shifting thinking in a field, or sparking new ideas
- Academics who want to engage in a diverse cross-sector community, who are good listeners and collaborators, and who are highly intellectually curious
In addition to these criteria, we are particularly interested in attracting more applicants working in Africa, Asia or Latin America.
Thank you for supporting this effort and sharing news of the competition within your networks.
Associate Vice President and Managing Director, Bellagio Programs
