FBSR: Landscape Scholarships 2021/2022
Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche, within the framework of research activities on landscape and the care for places developed with its Scientific Committee, establishes on a yearly basis landscape study scholarships, named after Sven-Ingvar Andersson (1927-2007), Rosario Assunto (1915-1994) and Ippolito Pizzetti (1926-2007), key figures for the Foundation’s scientific work since its inception.
The legacy of their tutelage continues to inspire and guide landscape studies and research and that is why the scholarships focus on three thematic areas that represent their cultural profile and field of activity: Landscape project (Sven-Ingvar Andersson); Theories and policies for landscape (Rosario Assunto); Nature and gardens (Ippolito Pizzetti)
The seventh edition 2021/2022 will grant two six-month scholarships in the thematic areas of Landscape project and Nature and gardens respectively.
For the first area, candidates are invited to submit a research project which focuses on landscape and energy and explores the different scenarios prompted by today’s energy policies, starting by compiling a series of up-to-date references which include a collection of virtuous case studies around the Mediterranean.
For the second area, candidates must submit a research project on the subject of the care and enhancement of historical gardens in Italy. Here, it must also be based on critical analysis of studies, research and experimentation currently ongoing in Italy.
Candidates may individually submit one research project only and they are encouraged to submit entries with innovative content that reflects the scientific work of the Foundation.
The deadline for submitting the applications is set without exception to Tuesday 31 August 2021, at 12 pm.
The duration of the scholarship, residential and non extendable, is six months each.
The scholarship will take place from 15 January 2022 to 15 July 2022.
The value of the scholarships is set at Euro 10,000.00 (gross).
The scholarships are open to Italian and foreign graduates (master’s degree/laurea magistrale) and postgraduates, under the age of 40 on 31 August 2021.
Research grant holders, or those who hold a public or private position, and carry out any work activity on an ongoing basis cannot apply.
