The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center: Residency Program
Through a four-week residency program in Bellagio, Italy, The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center provides civil society practitioners space and time to nurture ideas, advance their thinking, and catalyze action. The goal? Strengthen the well-being of humanity. The opportunity is open to senior-level policymakers, nonprofit leaders, journalists, and social entrepreneurs with significant experience in a broad range of fields and sectors.
As a resident, you can step away from your office to reflect and advance a strategic project in an environment where you engage with fellow resident scholars, artists, and policymakers from throughout the world. Practitioner residents capture lessons learned from past experiences in the NGO sector, create strategic plans to influence the future of organizations or the sector at large, and distill insights into writing that can inform a variety of audiences. Residency Programs have led to books, strategic organizational plans, partnership initiatives, and even global movements. All residents remain a part of a global network of leaders who strive to create a better future.
