Twice a year, the Foundation welcomes applications from 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. The Foundation awards approximately 55 Fellowships each year in seven residency periods that run from September through May.
The Fellows live and work in bucolic surroundings on the coast near Genoa, where natural beauty combines with an intimate group setting to encourage inquiry and transformative exchange across all discipline. 50 Fellowships are awarded per year, and since 1996, the Foundation has welcomed more than 900 Fellows who have traveled from 57 different countries to work at the Foundation's Study Center in Bogliasco, Italy. On average, there are 10-15 Fellows and spouse/partners in residence together, and a formal, communal dinner is served every evening. One-month residencies are scheduled during the two semesters of the traditional academic year: Fall (September to December) and Spring (January to May).
During their stay at the Center, Bogliasco Fellows and accompanying spouses/partners are provided with living quarters (bedroom with private bath) and full board. Bogliasco Fellows may be accompanied by their spouses/partners during their stay at the Bogliasco Study Center (however not with children). Spouses/partners are charged a daily fee of $25 to help defray the cost of meals and housing.
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.
The application portal is open and they are now accepting applications for Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 Fellowships. Upcoming deadlines are January 15, 2018 for Fall 2018 Fellowships and April 15, 2018 for Spring 2019 Fellowships.
