Bogliasco International Fellowships

Bogliasco Fellowships are awarded to qualified persons working in the various disciplines of the Arts and Humanities without regard to nationality, age, race, 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.

The Foundation gives preference to persons whose applications suggest that they would be comfortable working in an intimate, international, multi-lingual community of scholars and artists.

The following materials are required of all candidates for Fellowships. The written documents may be submitted in English, French, German, Italian, or Spanish.

  1. The completed application form.
  2. Three letters of reference, which must be sent to the Foundation as digital files.
  3. A short-form curriculum vitae, three pages in length.
  4. A one-page description of the project that the applicant would pursue during her / his stay at the Liguria Study Center.
  5. A sample of the applicant’s work that has been published, performed, exhibited, or otherwise publicly presented during the last five years.

Specific information for each page of the application may be opened by clicking the [Information] buttons at the bottom of the pages. We suggest that you read carefully this information as you complete your application.

Bogliasco Fellows may be accompanied by their spouses or partners during their stay at the Liguria Study Center.

Spouses / partners who intend to pursue a project in one of the disciplines, and who wish to be designated as Bogliasco Fellows, must submit separate and complete applications.

There are certain practical issues that may influence the granting or scheduling of a Fellowship :
