Bogliasco Foundation Arts and Humanities Fellowships – SUSPENDED
deadline: Wednesday, April 15, 2020
Due to the global COVID-19 outbreak, the Bogliasco Foundation’s board has made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend our Fellowship program in Bogliasco. We continue to monitor the situation daily, and will update our community in the weeks to come via email, social media and on our website. For those who wish to help with the crisis in Italy, we have posted some links below to reliable organizations that would be grateful for your support.
Please stay safe and take good care of yourselves and your families. A special message to our extended network of Fellows: stay in touch and let us know how you are doing!
The Bogliasco Foundation supports the arts and humanities by providing residential fellowships at its study center in Italy’s most vibrant, historic crossroads, where gifted artists and scholars of all cultures come together to connect, create, and disseminate significant new work.
To that end, the foundation is inviting applications for its fellowship program. The program awards one-month fellowships to individuals of all ages and nationalities who have made significant contributions in the arts and humanities. Fellows live and work in bucolic surroundings on the coast near Genoa, Italy, where natural beauty combines with an intimate group setting to encourage inquiry and transformative exchange across all disciplines.
The foundation awards approximately sixty fellowships per year to individuals doing creative or scholarly work in the following disciplines: archaeology, architecture, classics, dance, film/video, history, landscape architecture, literature, music, philosophy, theater, and visual arts.
Fellowships cover room and board but do not provide a travel or living stipend. Fellows are assigned a private workspace equipped with ample work surfaces, a desktop computer, a printer, and cabled and wireless Internet service (which is also accessible throughout the center). Some of the studios include special amenities: the visual arts studio, for example, includes basic equipment for painting, sculpture, and graphics; the music studio, which is equipped with an upright piano, keyboard, and a recording/playback system; and the 400-square-foot dance studio features a sprung floor with Marley, a sound system, a small work station, and optional 10’ by 7’ high mirrors.
Students currently in a degree-granting program are not eligible to apply.
