Camargo Fellowship 2023-2024


With this 2023-2024 edition, the Camargo Foundation’s historic residency program, known in recent years as the «Core Program» returns to its original name, the Camargo Fellowship. 

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 individuals or teams from hundreds of submissions from around the world. Winners are awarded residencies in a stunning, contemplative environment where they have the space, time, and freedom to think, create, and connect. 

From this 2023-2024 edition onward, 14 individuals will be selected for a residency as part of the program. Fellowships will span over 10 weeks. With each cohort of Fellows, the Foundation strives to foster connections between research and creation.


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 Ph.D. and a record of post-doctoral scholarship or to be Ph.D. 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 new projects. They should be able to demonstrate a track record of publications, public 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 identify among the following subcategories: Visual Artists / Choreographers, Theater Directors, Performance Artists / Writers and Playwrights / Film, Video and Digital Artists / Composers, and Sound Artists / Multidisciplinary Artists.
