American Academy in Rome: Rome Prize


The American Academy in Rome is the oldest American overseas center for independent study and advanced research in the arts and the humanities. For one hundred years the Academy's eleven acre center in Rome has provided an inspiring environment for those who practice the fine and liberal arts.

Each year, the Rome Prize is awarded to about thirty emerging artists and scholars who represent the highest standard of excellence and who are in the early or middle stages of their working lives. The deadline for the nation-wide Rome Prize competition is November 1, 2013. 


The winners are invited to Rome to pursue their work for periods ranging from six months to two years. They are provided with stipends, residential accommodation, meals, private studies or studios, and most important, an atmosphere conducive to intellectual and artistic freedom, interdisciplinary exchange, and innovation.
