Camargo Foundation Core Program

The Camargo Foundation welcomes applications from all countries and nationalities. Three main categories are available, and several subcategories for artists’ applications.

1). 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.

2). 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.

3). Artists (all disciplines) – Artists, in all disciplines, should be the primary creators of a new work/project and should have achieved 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 and Performance Artists / Writers and Playwrights / Film, Video and Digital Artists / Composers and Sound Artists / Multidisciplinary Artists.

Additional Information:
1). Collaborative Projects – Teams of up to three persons are also welcome, including but not limited to multidisciplinary collaborative projects.

2). Translation Projects – Professional translators are eligible to apply.

3). Former Fellows – First-time applicants are normally given preference over previous Camargo Fellows.
