Liguria Study Center for the Arts and Humanities -- Bogliasco Fellowships
Bogliasco Fellowships are awarded to gifted individuals working in all the disciplines of the Arts and Humanities without regard to nationality, age, race, religion or gender.
To be eligible for the award of a Fellowship, applicants should demonstrate significant achievement in their disciplines, commensurate with their age and experience. Please note that Bogliasco Fellowships are not awarded to students currently in a degree-granting program. The Foundation gives preference to those whose applications suggest that they would be comfortable working in an intimate, international, multilingual community of scholars and artists.
Deadlines: January 15th for residencies during the subsequent fall semester, and April 15th for residences during the subsequent spring semester.

The Bogliasco Foundation accepts applications from those doing both creative and scholarly work in the following fields: Archaeology, Architecture, Classics, Dance, Film/Video, History, Landscape Architecture, Literature, Music, Philosophy, Theater, and Visual Arts - without regard to nationality, age, race, or gender. Applicants should demonstrate significant achievement in their disciplines, commensurate with their age and experience. Students who are enrolled in a degree-granting program at the time of the application are not eligible.
Bogliasco Fellowships cover room and board but do not provide a travel or living stipend. The cost of transportation to and from the Study Center is the responsibility of Fellows or their accompanying spouses/partners. So are all other personal expenses incurred during the Fellowship period, including medical expenses and the purchase of project-related supplies or equipment.
