Established more than 40 years ago by Jerome Hill, the Camargo Foundation welcomes artists and scholars from all countries, nationalities, and career levels to work on specific projects or areas of inquiry. Applicants must be fluent in English.  Fellows may work individually or with a collaborator.

Located in a small town in the South of France, facing the Mediterranean Sea, the Foundation offers an exceptional environment to think, reflect, and create.  The residency experience is enhanced by the quiet campus and the surrounding natural beauty of Cap Canaille and the Calanques national park.   At the same time, Camargo is only a 45-minute drive from Marseille, and near Aix-en-Provence and Arles, which are major centers for arts, culture, and research. 

The core Fellowship program offers four, eight, and eleven week residential fellowships to :

  • Scholars working in French and Francophone cultures, including cross-cultural studies that engage the cultures and influences of the Mediterranean region;
  • Artists, in all disciplines, who are the primary creators of new work; and
  • Leading thinkers in the arts and humanities

The residency time is dedicated primarily to each Fellow’s work on site.

Regular Project Discussions are organized in which each Fellow’s work is presented and discussed. 

Fellows are housed in private apartments with kitchens on the Foundation’s campus, all with views of the Mediterranean and the Port of Cassis. A stipend of 600US$ per month is available, as is coverage of basic travel expenses to and from Cassis.   Spouses, partners, and children over six are welcome. Children must be enrolled in and attending school or off-campus activities.

Applications must be in English, although recommendations and work samples may be in English or French. For the 2015 guidelines in PDF format on how to apply, please click here. Note that these guidelines are approximative and are likely to be slightly revised for the 2016/2017 Fellowship Applications.
