NIAUSI Fellowships offer residency in the beautiful and rustic hill town of Civita di Bagnoregio, Italy. The fellowships are for active architecture and design professionals practicing in the states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho and the province of British Columbia. NIAUSI offers one and two month fellowships, each having different eligibility requirements.
The Astra Zarina Fellowship is a two month fellowship which covers the costs of restricted coach-class airfare for one person, a $1,500 stipend, and lodging for two months at the Civita Institute. Recipients of the One Month Fellowship receive lodging for one month at the Civita Institute, but are responsible for their own financial support and travel.
The primary mission of NIAUSI is to promote public discussion of issues related to the built environment. In addition to the once in a lifetime opportunity to live and work at the Civita Institute, NIAUSI Fellows also get to promote their work through organized presentations, exhibitions, articles and publications, and more.
