The Bogliasco Foundation is currently accepting applications for fellowships during the 2003-2004 academic year. Bogliasco fellowships are awarded, without regard to nationality, to qualified persons doing advanced creative work or scholarly research in the following disciplines: archaeology, architecture, classics, dance, film or video, history, landscape architecture, literature; music, philosophy, theater, and visual arts.
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 they intend to pursue. 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 fifty Bogliasco Fellowships are awarded during the two semesters of the traditional academic year. For 2003-2004, the dates are September 8 to December 12 (fall-winter), and February 9 to May 14 (winter-spring). Fellowships usually have a duration of one month (thirty-one days) or, in some cases, a half semester (forty-seven days). In special circumstances, residencies of other lengths may be approved.
For the 2003-2004 program, the deadlines are: January 15, 2003, for residencies during the fall-winter semester (beginning in September 2003); and April 15, 2003, for the winter-spring semester (beginning in February 2004).
