Bogliasco Fellowships are awarded, without regard to nationality, to qualified persons doing advanced creative work or scholarly research in the following disciplines:
- Landscape Architecture
- Visual 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 Music and Theater, the Center does not have rehearsal studio space for persons wishing to work extensively in performance. However, as of 2013, the Bogliasco Foundation is happy to announce the addition of a brand-new, state-of-the-art 365 sq ft dance studio. Customizations include a sprung floor with marley surface, mirrors, portable barres, and audio-video projection and recording capabilities.
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. The Bogliasco Foundation does not offer summer residencies. During 2014-2015 the dates are as follows: September 8 to December
19 (fall-winter), and February 2 to May 15 (winter-spring). The standard residency at the Liguria Study Center has a duration of 30 to 34 days, depending on various practical considerations: the travel arrangements of Fellows, their disciplines and studio requirements, the Foundation’s scheduling limitations, and so on.
Application deadlines are as follows: January 15, 2014, for the fall-winter semester beginning in September 2014, and April 15, 2014, for the winter-spring semester beginning in February 2015.
Bogliasco Fellows may be accompanied by spouses/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.
