The mission of the American Academy in Rome, founded in 1894, is to foster the pursuit of advanced research and independent study in the fine arts and humanities.

Founded in 1895 as the American School of Classical Studies in Rome (which merged into the Academy in 1913), the Academy's scholarly division offers fellowships in all phases of Italy's history and culture, from the ancient world to modern times. Each year, through its Rome Prize competition, the Academy awards twelve fellowships for research in Ancient Studies, Medieval Studies, Renaissance and Early Modern Studies, and Italian Studies.

The School of Fine Arts provides support to the annual Rome Prize Fellows in architecture, design arts, historic preservation and conservation, landscape architecture, literature, musical composition, and visual arts. The School of Fine Arts also sponsors public programs to provide Fellows a cultural bridge between the United States, Italy, and Europe.

What is the American Academy in Rome?
The American Academy in Rome is the oldest American overseas center for independent study and advanced research in the arts and humanities. Each year, through a national juried competition, the Academy offers approximately 30 Rome Prize fellowships.

Where is the American Academy in Rome located?
The Academy is located on the Janiculum hill in Rome, Italy. For a map and directions from the airport, please click here.
