Applications are now open for the Camargo Core Program 2021-2022. The Core Program, which was initiated in 1971, awards 18 international fellowships in the Arts and Humanities, supporting research and experimentation that challenge the borders of academic and artistic inquiry while promoting cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural exchange.
With the flagship Core Program at its center, in recent years Camargo has embarked on various collaborations with local and international organizations to forge a wide variety of new programs that further enhance the Foundation’s mission.
A stipend of $250 USD per week is provided, as is funding for basic transportation to and from Cassis for the Fellow for the residency. In the case of air travel, the basic coach class booked in advance is covered.
