DEADLINE: JANUARY 15 and APRIL 15 annually
Approximately 50 Bogliasco Fellowships are awarded each year. www.bfny.org/english/fellowships.cfm
Fellowships are awarded, without regard to nationality, to qualified persons doing advanced creative work or scholarly research in the following disciplines: archaeology, architecture, classics, dance, film or video, history, landscape architecture, literature, music, philosophy, theatre, visual arts in the arts.
In the Arts, the Study Center welcomes persons doing both creative and scholarly work (such as Art History, Musicology, Film Criticism, and so on). With respect to Dance, Music, and Theater, however, the Center does not have rehearsal studio space for persons wishing to work extensively in performance.
Applicants for Fellowships are expected to demonstrate significant achievement in their disciplines, commensurate with their age and experience. In addition, they must submit descriptions of the projects that they intend to pursue in Bogliasco. An approved project is presumed to lead to the completion of an artistic, literary, or scholarly work, followed by publication, performance, exhibition, or other public presentation.
Approximately 50 Bogliasco Fellowships are awarded each year. They are scheduled during the two semesters of the traditional academic year. Fellowships usually have a duration of one month (30-31 days). In some circumstances, half-semester residencies (47 days) may be awarded with special approval of the Bogliasco Foundation Board of Trustees.
Deadlines for the submission of applications are as follows:
January 15, 2012, for residencies during the fall-winter semester beginning in September 2012, and April 15, 2012, for the winter-spring semester beginning in February 2013.
Bogliasco Fellows may be accompanied by spouses (or spouse-equivalent companions) during their stay at the Liguria Study Center. Spouses or companions 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.
