Affiliated Fellowships

Civitella Ranieri has a longstanding tradition of Affiliated Fellowships. For many years we have collaborated with the UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries for Artists Programme to reach potential Fellows from India, Asia and Africa. More recently named Fellowships include the Lexi Rudnitsky First Book Prize in Poetry, with Persea Books, and the Kirby-Mewshaw Affiliated Fellowship. In 2012 we hosted a Beirut 39 writer in collaboration with the Alliance of Artist Communities.

Fellowships are often funded in part by the sponsoring agency and in other cases, travel expenses alone are covered. Collaboration with outside organizations enriches the program, the pool of candidates, and the profile of the Civitella community.

If you or your organization is interested in creating an Affiliated Fellowship with the Civitella Ranieri Foundation, please contact us at to explore possibilities.
