Projects in all fields are welcome, but there is an interest in projects that are inspired by or relates to global or social issues. We also welcome projects that share more broadly in the Foundation’s mission of promoting the well-being of humankind or directly in the Foundation’s issue areas of Advance Health, Revalue Ecosystems, Secure Livelihoods, and Transform Cities.

Length of Stay
Arts & Literary Arts Residencies last between two to four weeks.

Team Residencies
The Center welcomes collaborative residencies for up to four people working on the same project. The Bellagio Center prefers team projects that bring residents together from different geographies, institutions, or disciplines since this reinforces the Center’s goal of establishing new connections.

Repeat Applicants
Applicants are not allowed to re-submit any unsuccessful proposals, but they are permitted to submit revised versions. Applicants may apply up to a total of three times. However, those who have held residencies (or spouses who accompanied residents for more than one week) must wait five years before reapplying. There is a lifetime limit of two residencies.

Spouses/life partners may accompany the resident, or may apply for a concurrent residency. However, children, even adult children, are not allowed to accompany recipients of residencies.

Applications must be completed online in English and submitted by the published deadline. Applicants who have trouble accessing the online form may contact to discuss alternative ways to submit the application.
