Our Online Application is Now Closed

Our online application is now closed for residencies during the Spring 2022 semester. The submission deadline was April 15th, 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have to reschedule many canceled residencies to future semesters. Therefore, the selection process for the upcoming round of applications will be highly competitive and very few Fellowships will be available. Additionally, we will give priority to applicants who would be eligible for our current Special Fellowships, and they will be considered for any potential remaining spots during Fall 2021.

Reopening of the Study Center

The Bogliasco Foundation is pleased to announce that our Study Center reopened on October 12th for a small pilot group of European Fellows. Despite the many challenges due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Foundation intends to continue supporting the arts and humanities via our Fellowship program - with caution and modifications, but also with great enthusiasm and purpose, as artists and scholars around the globe need our help now more than ever. After extensive research into risk mitigation, and in coordination with the Italian health authorities, we aim to provide the same safe and nurturing environment for creative work and transformative exchange that has distinguished our program for 24 years.

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-fourth year of operation, the Study Center in Bogliasco, Italy, has welcomed over 1070 Fellows from 62 different countries. Click here to see the full list of current Fellows and read more about their work.
