The Core Program is the flagship program of the Camargo Foundation. Since 1971, the Camargo Foundation has awarded residencies to over 800 Core Program Fellows. Moreover, Camargo mission is to support groundbreaking research, experimentation, and interdisciplinary approaches in the Arts and Humanities. As such, the fully funded Camargo Core Program is available for application.
Moreover, the fellows will receive residencies in a stunning, contemplative environment where they have space, time, and freedom to think, create, and connect. Fellowships span 6 to 11 weeks. With each cohort of Fellows, the Foundation strives to foster connections between research and creation.
Research, Experiment & Create: Applicants must submit a proposal of work they would like to accomplish during their residencies. Proposals may include specific projects to develop or complete (e.g. a book, film, composition, artwork, etc.) or research into a particular topic or issue, in advance of writing or creating a work of art.
Exchange & Network: During the residency, discussions are held regularly so that Fellows have the opportunity to present their work to the group. These project discussions serve as an opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange.
During the Fully Funded Camargo Core Program, the fellows will receive a stipend of 250 USD per week. The stipend will cover for basic transportation to and from Cassis. In the case of air travel, the fellowship will cover basic coach class booked in advance.
Furthermore, Spouses/adult partners and dependent minor children are welcome to accompany fellows for short stays or for the duration of the residency.
