Accompanying Family Members 

  • Spouses/adult partners and dependent minor children are welcome to accompany fellows for short stays or for the duration of the residency. Accompanying children must be at least six years old upon arrival and enrolled in and attending school or organized activities outside the Camargo Foundation campus during the week. The Camargo Foundation staff will advise on enrollment in the local public schools. Only family members whose names appear on the application form may be in residence. Animals other than officially registered service animals are not allowed. Fellows are responsible for securing all necessary documents and meeting all standards if bringing a service dog from outside of the country.

Eligibility

The Camargo Foundation prizes diversity and welcomes applicants from all countries and nationalities, representing a broad range of creative thought and practice. Three main categories are available, and 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 (all disciplines) 

Artists in all disciplines should be the primary creators of a new work/project and should have a track record of publications, performances, exhibitions, credits, awards, and/or grants. We are interested in artists who have a fully developed, mature artistic voice. Applicants may include artists who are engaged in critical thought and research-oriented projects. When applying, artists will have to choose among the following subcategories: Visual Artists / Choreographers, Theater Directors, and Performance Artists / Writers and Playwrights / Film, Video and Digital Artists / Composers and Sound Artists / Multidisciplinary Artists.

  • 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 submit only one joint application and 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.

  • Former Fellows 

When equally ranked, first-time applicants are normally given preference over previous Camargo Fellows. Former Fellows may not apply until three years after their previous fellowship.
