How to Apply

We are excited to announce the opening of the 2019 application period for the next round of Civita institute Fellows! 

We will be offering three fellowships that will span the second half of 2019 and the first half of 2020. The Civita Institute Astra Zarina Fellowship is a 2-month opportunity and the Civita Institute Fellowship and the Civita Institute Drexler Family Diversity Fellowship are 1-month opportunities to pursue a research interest in Civita di Bagnoregio and the Viterbo region. Please visit our Fellowships page for more information and descriptions of our various fellowship offerings.

With this round of fellowships we are introducing the structure of seasons as a way to cluster fellows together, creating greater opportunities for creative exchange and strengthening visiting fellows' sense of community. Applicants will be asked to indicate which season(s) they prefer on their application based on a list of specific time blocks for the Fall 2019–Spring 2020 seasons.

New! Starting with this application cycle we are going to be switching to the CaFE platform for submissions so if you are used to our previous format, please take some time to get familiar with the CaFE platform. In addition, we are expanding the applicant region to all states along and west of the Rocky Mountains, to include the following states: Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico. 

The application opens on December 22, 2018 and must be submitted by January 31, 2019 at 11:00 PM PST.  Click on the APPLY button in the sidebar to the right to begin your appplication. If you have any questions, please email
