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.
The foundation is now accepting applications for the Virginia Howard Fellowship, which includes a $3,000 stipend for an African-American woman working in any discipline of the arts and humanities at any stage in her career. Van Cleef & Arpels sponsors annual fellowships for a choreographer and a young poet of any nationality that includes a $2,000 stipend for the awardees. These special fellowships also provide a one-month residency at the Bogliasco Study Center.
The foundation's online application portal is now open for residencies for the Spring 2022 semester. The deadline for applications is April 15, 2021. As there are few spaces available, the foundation notes that the selection process for this round will be highly competitive and that it will give priority to applicants who would be eligible for its current Special Fellowships.
