Special Fellowships

 

Through the support of generous donors and partner organizations who share our commitment to the arts and humanities, the Bogliasco Foundation is pleased to offer Special Fellowship awards, some of which provide travel support and/or stipends to recipients.

Special Fellowships may be designated for persons working in a particular discipline or reserved for individuals coming from certain countries or geographic areas. In some cases, partner organizations may nominate specific candidates for Special Fellowship awards.

Recipients of Special Fellowship awards are determined by the Bogliasco Foundation and/or our partner organizations, and recipients are notified each year by August 1. Bogliasco Fellows may not apply for Special Fellowships. When awards are determined, all Fellows are automatically considered, and recipients are chosen based on the eligibility requirements of each award.

We are pleased to thank our generous donors and partners who make possible the following Special Fellowships:
