The American Academy in Rome supports innovative artists, writers, and scholars living and working together in a dynamic international community. Each year, the Academy awards the Rome Prize to 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 winners are invited to Rome to pursue their work in an atmosphere conducive to intellectual and artistic experimentation and interdisciplinary exchange. The Rome Prize consists of room and board, a stipend ($28,000 for full-term fellowships; $16,000 for half-term fellowships), individual work space, and privileged access to Rome. 

The deadline for the national Rome Prize competition is Wednesday, November 1, 2017. Applications will also be accepted between November 2-15, 2017, for an additional fee. More information on the Rome Prize and the online application can be found here
