Rome Prize winners
pursue independent projects, which vary in content and scope, for periods
ranging from six months to two years at the Academy. Stipends range
from $9,000 to $17,800 (depending on the terms of the fellowships). To
complement their work, a series of walks, talks and tours in and around
Rome, Italy and the Mediterranean is offered during the year. The
Academy's Rome Prize winners are part of a residential community of 65
to 70 people each year. The artists and scholars who make up this
multidisciplinary community also have the opportunity to foster their work
through exchanges with members of the Italian and newly-united
European artistic and scholarly communities.
