Camargo Foundation Fellowship
The Camargo Foundation maintains a study center in Cassis, France, for the benefit of fellows who wish to pursue projects in the humanities and social sciences related to French and Francophone cultures, as well as creative projects by writers, composers, visual artists (painters, sculptors, photographers, video artists, filmmakers, and new media artists). Creative projects do not need to have a specific French connection. For scholarly projects, research should be at a sufficiently advanced stage so as not to require resources unavailable in the Marseilles-Cassis Aix region. These geographic limits affirm the Foundation’s identity and mission as a residence center for scholars and artists who are well into the writing/making phases of their projects as opposed to a research facility. The Foundation offers, at no cost, thirteen furnished apartments as well as a reference library, a darkroom, an artist’s studio, a music composition studio, and a studio for either an artist or a composer. The residential fellowship is for a period of one semester (either Fall or Spring).
Members of university and college faculties, including professors emeriti, who wish to pursue special studies while on leave from their institutions; Independent scholars working on specific projects; Teachers in secondary schools, public or private, benefiting from a leave of absence in order to work on some pedagogical or scholarly project; Graduate students whose academic residence and general requirements have been met and for whom a stay in France would be beneficial in completing the dissertation required for their degree; Writers, composers, visual artists (painters, sculptors, photographers, video artists, filmmakers, and new media artists) with specific projects to complete.
The Camargo fellowship is a residential grant. A $1,500 stipend is also available.
