Camargo Foundation Fellowship Program
The Camargo Foundation maintains in Cassis, France, a center for the benefit of scholars who wish to pursue studies in the humanities and social sciences related to French and Francophone cultures. The foundation also supports creative projects by visual artists, photographers, video artists, filmmakers, media artists, composers, and writers. Creative projects do not have to have a specific French connection. For scholarly projects, research should be sufficiently advanced not to require resources unavailable in the Marseilles-Cassis-Aix region. These geographic limits affirm the foundation's identity and mission as a residential center as opposed to a research facility. The foundation offers, at no cost, thirteen furnished apartments, a reference library, a darkroom, an artist's studio, and a music composition studio. The residential fellowship is accompanied by a stipend of $3,500, awarded to each recipient of the grant. The normal term of residence is one semester (early September to mid-December or mid-January to May 31; the precise dates are announced each year). Applicants may include university and college faculty, including professors emeriti, who intend to pursue special studies while on leave from their institutions; independent scholars working on specific projects; secondary school teachers taking leaves of absence to work on pedagogical or scholarly projects; graduate students whose academic residence and general examination requirements have been met and for whom a stay in France would be beneficial in completing the dissertation; and visual artists, photographers, video artists, filmmakers, media artists, composers, and writers with specific projects to complete. Applicants from all countries are welcome. The application deadline is January 15 for the following academic year.
