COVID-19 Update

Due to the global COVID-19 outbreak, the Bogliasco Foundation’s board has made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend our Fellowship program in Bogliasco. We continue to monitor the situation daily, and will update our community in the weeks to come via email, social media and on our website. For those who wish to help with the crisis in Italy, we have posted some links below to reliable organizations that would be grateful for your support.

Please stay safe and take good care of yourselves and your families. A special message to our extended network of Fellows: stay in touch and let us know how you are doing!

Help support Italy during the COVID-19 pandemic

This go-fund-me campaign is supporting the beleaguered Infectious Diseases Division of San Martino Hospital in Genova, the major hospital of all of Liguria, which has been facing unprecedented challenges.

The Italian Red Cross is on the front lines every day throughout Italy and can also use the support.

Our Application Site is Still Open!

The application deadline for Spring 2021 Fellowships is extended to May 1, 2020. Click here for more information.

An American nonprofit with a program in Italy, the Bogliasco Foundation awards one-month Fellowships to individuals of all ages and nationalities who have made significant contributions in the arts and humanities. 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 disciplines. 


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 60 Fellowships each year in seven residency periods that run from September through May.


Now in our twenty-third year of operation, the Study Center in Bogliasco, Italy, has welcomed over 1050 Fellows from 61 different countries. Click here to see the full list of current Fellows and read more about their work.


The Foundation frequently hosts special events in Italy and New York featuring projects developed by Fellows in residence.  Bogliasco Fellows also regularly exhibit, perform, and publish their acclaimed work around the globe.
